    Dear Friends, The worldwide Covid-19 epidemic has forced us to make changes at Tiko and amongst other things to look into the effects of the loss of income from the lodge and restaurant.

  • Newsletter No. 7, December 2021
    Dear Friends, With covid omicron on the march it seems we are all in trouble again, but please note that at Tiko we are looking forward to a New Year that will be very hard, but will take Tiko towards sustainability, even though the rains are only just arriving now, three months late! We must thank you for having brought us this far, with almost two years of no income from the lodge and none of my fund-raising trips. For us, God is Great, and we hope that you, who have a heart for the poor, will have a feeling of contentment, however much covid now hits you.

  • Newsletter No. 5, September/October 2021
    Dear Friends, It seems so long since I saw any of you, but that is what COVID has meant to us. We have grown used to the strangely quiet restaurant and lodge, which is coupled to a loss of income that Tiko can ill afford. Like so many countries, we are also experiencing the effects of global warming, even if less dramatically than in some places, The rains were heavier than usual in the hot season which even helped some crops, but if the temperature in the hot season was high the cold season has been colder than usual. We shivered through this year’s AGM in the verandah with the cold air blowing freely through…

  • Newsletter No. 3, May 2021
    Dear friends, We are growing used to our much-changed life at Tiko, but very much miss the pleasure we had in welcoming visitors from various parts of the world. We also miss sharing in their enjoyment of the welcomes they receive from people they meet in the villages. We have lost the income from the lodge and restaurant, at least until travel from abroad becomes possible again. In the meantime we have not been idle…
  • Newsletter No. 1, January 2021
    Dear FriendsDespite all our precautions, Tiko has not entirely escaped Covid 19. Tests were offered at St Francis Hospital and the crew was sent to take one.
