Challenge

Chimanimani district eastern Zimbabwe was hit by a powerful Cyclone IDAI from the Indian Ocean in March 2019, leaving 75 households community members without toilets and houses. The government and other agencies worked hard to assist but Chimanimani east which was not worst hit has more than 75 households with (5400 people) who were not assisted with reconstruction of destroyed toilets and houses. This has compromised shelter and sanitation systems, while sexual abuse cases increased in the area

Solution

The project will assist the 75 affected households with construction materials to reconstruct 60 toilets and 15 houses that were destroyed by the cyclone to provide shelter and sanitation. Sexual abuse cases which are on the increase due to sharing of accommodation facilities will reduce. Community members will be trained in disaster risk, reduction to reduce community vulnerability to disasters, while affected women/girls will receive ongoing counselling from CISDE and other service providers.

Long-Term Impact

The project will build toilets and houses for more than 540 community members in Chakohwa, allowing them to improve their hygiene, shelter and standard of living. This will provide for the health and well-being of affected household members.
