Erratic and poorly distributed rainfall in Zimbabwe for two years has resulted in a severe drought affecting the Provinces of Matabeleland North and South. The same eastern region is yet to recover from unprecedented flooding from Cyclones Idai and Kenneth.
Humanitarian needs include food assistance, emergency health and nutrition support, increased access to safe water and reviving the market system.
Zimbabwe’s food security situation is growing ever more precarious as millions of Zimbabweans require food assistance.
Five members from Zimbabwe ACT Forum members, Methodist Development and Relief Agency (MeDRA), Lutheran Development Services (LDS), DanChurchAid (DCA), Zimbabwe Council of Churches (ZCC) and Christian Aid (CA) have raised an appeal to respond to the drought in the sectors of Cash programs, Food assistance/Security, WASH, Climate Smart Agriculture, Emergency Preparedness and Protection.
