We appreciate your donation at any level.
Your donation will help the Turgwe Hippo Trust to purchase the necessary materials to operate the Trust to keep on saving these wild hippos. To run the Trust we use a generator for power as we do not have electricity living here in the Zimbabwe bush. We operate the pump in the river to keep the hippos two emergency pans with water by utilising this generator. Our Internet and Email communications are run using a satellite dish powered by the generator. We need daily fuel to run the generator and to run the Trust’s vehicles. We need to employ local people for any extra projects as well as pay the rangers.
You will be helping us by any donation you can afford.

A few actions we recently achieved thanks to your help amongst our normal daily tasks: we fed the hippos with hay, survival ration and horse cubes for five months, we improved the flow of the Turgwe river, and we daily patrol the bush either on our own or accompanying the five rangers, removing the snares put by poachers.
Once in Paypal, when you have selected Credit Card, the below form will be displayed
This is a standard payment form for any card payment, meaning all informations are mandatory.
Request for issuing an IRS receipt
IRS’ receipt editing rules request to have the full name and address (as ‘tax payer’).
These informations may not be those declared with your Paypal’s profile when using alias or nickname. If you want to use the IRS receipt, we encourage you to check your Paypal’s profile and to apply the necessary changes.
As there is no possible control on our side, we build the receipt with Paypal’s data, so fanzy names could be written as such on the receipt and would nullify its usage.
IRS’ receipt creation is based on parsing the country is only “United States”.
In case of any issue, please contact us via the contact form.
