The Frontline Foundation has just released this statement:
The Directors of the DSC Frontline Foundation have approved a plan to provide assistance to the family of Claudio Chiarelli, the respected professional hunter who was tragically killed, along with his son Max, while providing anti-poaching services in Zimbabwe last month. The Foundation will match donations in an amount up to $10,000.00 and will forward 100% of all donations to Mr. Chiarelli’s survivors.You can make a donation by going to www.dscfrontlinefoundation.org and following the Support Us link.
The actions of Claudio and Max are not uncommon in Africa, but are typically done with little fanfare or recognition. Those actions evidence one more example of the committment and assumption of often extreme risks by these dedicated professionals. Please help the Foundation express our thanks and gratitude to the Chiarelli family for the sacrifices paid by Claudio and Max by making donation for Claudio’s benefit. Donations by US citizens are deductible under Section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code.
