#FreeData

Zimbabwean Citizens declared a mass stayaway from 14-16 January 2019 in protest to the over 250% increase in fuel prices without commensurate safety nets for the people. The government responded with a massive police and military operation that has left people displaced, missing, injured and traumatized. This fund seeks to help those affected get food, medical and shelter  relief during this period.

HOW WILL THE FUNDS BE DISBURSED
We have a network of  activists in the country who are taking stock of the situation. We will work with them and other non-governmental organizations to ensure that food & other needs are availed to victims.
