DONATION TO THE FOCUS-AFRICA FOUNDATION

PLEASE HELP SUPPORT THE WAR ON RHINO POACHING


The scale of rhino poaching in South Africa has reached crisis point, where the very survival of the rhino species in public parks like the Kruger National Park (KNP) is now threatened. Of the 1215 rhinos poached in South Africa during 2014, 827 (68%) were poached in the KNP, the epicentre of a battle that is currently being lost.

The KNP, home to the single largest population of rhinos in the world, shares a border of approximately 365km with Mozambique. The widespread poverty of the communities that reside on the Mozambican side of this border, has led to Mozambique becoming the key staging area for the criminal syndicates (many of them based in South Africa) who fund and co-ordinate the poaching gangs tormenting the park.

FOCUS AFRICA FOUNDATION
The Focus Africa Foundation (FAF) is a South-African based non-profit organisation established explicitly to provide support to the Joaquim Chissano Foundation (FJC), with funds, technical assistance and professional expertise being channelled into President Joaquim Chissano’s Wildlife Initiative in Mozambique, launched on 4 November 2013.

1) Intelligence
It is essential to understand how the syndicates operate, the geographical focus of their activities and the socio-economic circumstances that lead to communities being ruthlessly exploited to provide the cannon-fodder for the Rhino War. At a local level this intelligence is vital to devising strategies that will cut-off the oxygen that feeds the brain (the level 3 & 4 crime bosses) by targeting, for arrest and successful prosecution, the level 2's & 3's (middle-men and local buyer-exporters) as well as the corrupt officials that feed off the system. The level 3's and 4's can only be neutralised by significant international co-operation, which is why the political leadership of retired Mozambique President Joaquim Chissano, historically a key driving force behind the trans-frontier Peace Parks, is so important.

 

THIS LISTING IS FOR A DONATION TO THE FOCUS-AFRICA FOUNDATION. ALL MONIES RECEIVED WILL BE FORWARDED DIRECTLY TO ANTI-RHINO POACHING OPERATIONS. NO MONEY WILL BE SPENT OR WASTED ON ADMINISTRATION, ETC.
