In an effort to reach out to as many people as possible, the partnership is spreading information via radio broadcasts in Ndebele and Shona.

GOAL Zimbabwe country director, Gabriella Prandini said: “Working in partnership at every level is fundamental to helping create awareness of how to stop the spread of this virus.

“We will do everything we can to maintain our programmes during this difficult time, and to support and protect communities.

“The people of Zimbabwe are trying to recover from Cyclone Idai and are also coping with the ongoing drought and sky-high inflation rates.

“Now is our time to act with speed and courage and to be there when we are needed most.”

Pandrini said it was critical the health systems are not overwhelmed and one way of doing this was ensuring that communities were kept informed about the virus.
