Challenge

According to the United Nations Development Programme an estimated 250 000 people in Zimbabwe have been impacted by Cyclone Idai, of which 40000 are from Chimanimani area. This population includes girls and women - including expecting and lactating mothers and their babies who are now more vulnerable have no access to hygiene and sanitary equipment. With no hygiene related items, the lives of these women and children is unbearable thus affecting their health and general well-being.

Solution

CFWRZ will provide hygiene kits made up of sanitary pads, bath soap and towel, petroleum jelly, washing powder, tooth paste and tooth brush to 13 000 women in the Chimanimani area. mothers with small babies will also be provided with baby diapers. This will help improve basic hygiene practices.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide women with the much needed hygiene kits resulting in the reduction of risks of contracting reproductive tract infections caused due to ignorance of personal hygiene and risks of contracting hygiene related illnesses among children like diarrhea and cholera.
