The past few years have been a challenge for the charity as the pandemic shut down the African tourism industry completely for 2 years. Without tourists, the game lodges were shut and unemployment was rampant in the rural communities. Most job opportunities for the rural communities is working in the game lodges in the surrounding areas. Fortunately, since March 2022, the borders re-opened and the industry rebounded. It is a testament to African resilience to have survived 2 very difficult years.
