Zimbabwe 2014

The government of Zimbabwe declared a national disaster in February when torrential rains caused flooding in the south of the country.

The floods destroyed infrastructure and crops and displaced more than 3,000 families in Chivi and Masvingo districts in Masvingo province and Tsholotsho district in Matabeleland North.

In response, the Emergency Relief Coordinator approved a US$773,181 rapid response grant from CERF to help the World Food Programme provide food and nutrition and health services to thousands of people affected by the disaster.
