The recent Tropical Cyclone Idai has had a devastating impact on most parts of the Eastern Highlands in Zimbabwe – notably Chimanimani and Chipinge but also Mutare, Mutasa, and Zimunya. There are many fatalities already and more being reported daily. Please help them.
There are numerous fund raising efforts taking place with a wonderful response from people within Zimbabwe and around the world who are assisting with the collection and delivery of medicine, food, clothing and other relief supplies.
The people of Chimanimani thank everyone for their kindness and consideration.
