Flame Lily Foundation

The Flame Lily Foundation is a registered non-profit organisation which has been in existence for over 30 years and was initially the Rhodesia Association of South Africa - RASA.

The Foundation endeavours to promote, further and secure the interests of members and former residents of Rhodesia/Zimbabwe and their descendants living in South Africa. In pursuit of this, they facilitate residential accommodation for persons over the age of 60 who have settled in South Africa. When called upon, they provide limited welfare assistance to deserving former residents of Rhodesia/Zimbabwe - in particular to the aged and the disabled. The establishment of a good working relationship with the Zimbabwe Government Pensions Office in Harare is assisting some who have had their pensions withheld.
The Foundation also endeavours to preserve the heritage of Rhodesia and to promote Flame Lily Foundationinterest in the country’s history and culture. To achieve these objects, they rely on the goodwill of the South African community as a whole, former residents of Rhodesia in general, and dedicated volunteers in particular. About 2,000 paid up members in South Africa and overseas are involved and provide this support. FLF was involved with the Viscount Memorial project and promotes the annual commemorative services that are held at the Voortrekker Monument & Heritage Site. Magazines and newsletters for members provide national and branch news, articles from the cherished past, book launches, letters, dates of forthcoming events throughout the year - such as the Remembrance Days in November across South Africa. A gazette with news coverage from Zimbabwe today is also distributed.

The Managing Committee is Mike Russell (Chairman), Ned Donkin (Vice-Chairman), John Parsons (Treasurer) and John Redfern (Secretary).
