UNICEF Zimbabwe CO Situation Report #5, 20 March – 4 April 2014



  • UNICEF working with partners is reaching more than 2,735 school going age children affected by flooding with hygiene promotion, clean water and appropriate temporary sanitation. UNICEF has also supported the initial setup of temporary learning spaces and the deployment of social workers to provide psycho-social support to affected women, men and children.

  • UNICEF response is 12% funded and unmet needs of flood affected children include psychosocial support, safe learning spaces and good nutrition.

  • The relocation of women, men and children to the proposed settlement site is largely being resisted by families who require secure tenure of land and financial compensation before moving.
