Happy Holidays!

On behalf of the Meriwether Foundation, I would like to express a sincere thank you to all 2010 community volunteers and contributors!


I am so grateful to report that the scale of our work is growing rapidly. From planning to open 2 new medical clinics in Zambia and Zimbabwe to delivering a record number of medical supplies, books, agricultural goods, clothing, school supplies etc, our projects continue to look to better the lives of so many in rural Southern Africa.
