WASHINGTON — Non-Governmental Organizations are pressing on with calls for transparency in the distribution of aid meant for flood victims in Tsholotsho, Matabeleland North, and Tokwe-Murkosi in Masvingo, the regions mostly affected by recent floods.

The aid, which is in the form of food, blankets, clothes, tents, and cash, is from the government, NGOs, individuals, and the international community, and is distributed by the government's Civic Protection Unit.

Reverend Eddison Dube of the Pentercostal Assemblies of Zimbabwe, Tsholotsho branch, which has donated to the flood victims in the area and works with the Civic Protection Unit to distribute the aid, says his church has informed the government that although most flood victims receive food and clothing, they still lack shelter, which is vital for their livelihood.

Reverend Dube explains to reporter Sithandekile Mhlanga how the distribution is carried-out in the region.
