CERF supports cholera response in Zimbabwe

When the government of Zimbabwe announced a state of emergency following a Cholera outbreak in mid-September, CERF was quick to allocate  US$3M to rapidly scale up aid activities, increase access to lifesaving treatment and raise awareness for cholera prevention among communities.

Since the onset of the outbreak 8.831 suspected cases (194 confirmed) were reported in Harare’s high-density areas and other parts of the country, with 54 deaths.
