The Zulu ladies receive an above average wage and whenever we go out to S.Africa we take second hand clothes, shoes, football kits for the ladies’ children. I learnt that bras were expensive and a luxury for the ladies, who spent their hard-earned money on food, household bills and their children. I did an appeal and was donated a huge selection of wonderful braziers, which went down extremely well as you can see here! In 2018 we went out to see the ladies; I asked them what else Zulucow could do to help. They all said school uniform was getting ridiculously expensive. So Zulucow bought uniform for Nelly’s 4 children, Lindiwe’s 4, Gugu’s and Ma Phillipine’s grandson Bhuti.

Dear Lucy,

The food parcel enabled Cenile to free up enough cash that she is getting a solar light system this weekend. 

I just wanted to send a note to say thank you so much for the food parcels. It really did make a difference to the women. This month has been a lot easier on them financially.

Thank you so much for your continuing support and inspiration. Especially as we move into a new very different world.

Keep Safe,

In 2019 Zulucow supplied school uniform, stationery and shoes for 9 of the Zulucow ladies’ children.

In 2020, Covid was really affecting the Zulu ladies, so we decided to launch the new Cowhide Clutch bag and give £20 per bag bought back to the ladies. We asked the ladies what they’d like to do with the proceeds from the bag; they asked for food. Here the Ladies are thanking Zulucow’s customers!
