The UN Resident Coordinator in Zimbabwe Ms Maria Ribeiro confirmed that the UN has updated its GHRP and said:
This additional appeal is part of the GHRP which will contribute to Zimbabwe’s national response on Covid-19, particularly addressing the most vulnerable, including children, the elderly, women, people with disabilities, people living with HIV, refugees, migrants, and those affected by drought and food insecurity.
