Churches Establish A Cholera And Typhoid Response Fund

The Zimbabwe Council of Churches (ZCC) has established a cholera and typhoid response fund to help curb the Cholera outbreak that has claimed 30 lives to date.

The Cholera outbreak started in Harare and has since spread to other cities. Bulawayo which had not recorded a cholera incident in Ten years recorded its first on Friday.

In a statement, the  ZCC said it was seized with the matter and was establishing a cholera and typhoid response fund to deal with the outbreak and prevent its further spread.

ZCC statement reads:

Throughout the state of emergency on cholera and typhoid, the ZCC will rally its member churches in efforts to prevent deaths, ameliorate the suffering and contribute towards lasting solutions to address the root cause of recurrent outbreaks.

In particular, the ZCC will participate in stakeholder consultations in order to contribute to a collective way forward, provide pastoral resources to help pastors to be relevant as they minister in affected areas, medical institutions and bereaved families, establish a cholera reporting centre to collect and share information from churches in affected areas, establish a cholera/typhoid response fund to assist the affected families and communities.
