Further Mercury Phoenix Trust news items that have just be added to the new site.
Check out the story on the Zamuxolo Orphanage and the accompanying photo gallery Zamuxolo part 2: Building work commences.
I would be interested in knowing what the original mandate was when the Mercury Phoenix Trust was formed. I remember reading about it some years ago but can't recall the details.
What exactly does it say that the monies will used for? Obviously someone issued a go ahead for this project to procede. I'm trying to remember who is in charge of the Fund. I would think it would be Mary Austin, Jim Beach and beyond that maybe someone else can help by coming up with the answer. Jacky from the fan club would probably know.
There are many projects out there some more --deserving is not the correct word-- but fitting the qualifications might be.
This project on the surface of what information we're given would seem to be on the outer edges of what might qualify,but who can tell?
If the money is there and the project meets the qualifications and there is no one else is in line or being skipped over then why not? Anyone willing to look after AIDS patients, AIDS orphans, almost anything AIDS related that involves giving of oneself for that cause deserves a special place when the time comes. I think Freddie would agree.
