Water and Sanitation International Medical Corps has supported community-based emergency health and water and sanitation (WASH) projects that have benefited more than 220,000 people living in Mashonaland Central Province. By providing clean water and effective sanitation, we reduce the risk of people, particularly children becoming ill from water related diseases.
Health Care We also worked to strengthen the overall health care system in Zimbabwe through providing much-needed medical supplies to local partners and worked with the Ministry of Health and Child Welfare to train health workers and build capacity.
Social Development International Medical Corps works alongside partners to bring families together to help each other in productive activities such as land cultivation, livestock tending and business opportunities.
The project aims to build on community initiatives and solidarity to strengthen food security and enhance people’s abilities to cope with unforeseen and difficult circumstances. The project works with over 66,000 households, to increase the amount of food produced by local communities.
Nutrition International Medical Corps screens children, pregnant women, and lactating mothers for malnutrition, and provides treatment and nutritional support as needed. Our community health workers assess and treat patients through home visits as well as in clinics and educate families on how to prevent malnutrition.
