Global Partners - COVID 19 Response (April 28, 2020)
Greetings from Zimbabwe,
We have been praying for and with you.
The news of how the corona virus has hit Italy , France , UK, USA etc is indeed frightening. This does not spare us-Africa Zimbabwe even though there are no reports of the severity of the virus.
Zimbabwe is on a 21 day lock down as are other countries like south Africa. Hopefully it can help curb the spread of the virus.
Our health system was already in shambles. Medication was in short supply and extremely expensive and thus beyond reach of the generality of the people.
The drought has hit us again. About 7.7 million people are in need of food aid.
We are very vulnerable and are not prepared to handle the corona virus. Some doctors and nurses have withdrawn their services because they do not have protective gear. Worsening the situation.
People are being asked to wash their hands regularly with clean running water. Unfortunately , our water is not considered clean. Some areas go for weeks without water.
The government is making progress to address the anomalies. In the interim God has been gracious and by His grace we are what we are. Otherwise bodies may be lying in the streets with no one to bury.
Again thank you for your thoughtfulness and prayers. We shall continue to pray with you.
Reverend R. Henry Chiromo, Emmanuel Baptist, Harare, Zimbabwe
