ACF has been working in Zimbabwe since 2002 and over the years, has been a key humanitarian actor in the country. Since 2015, ACF has adopted an intervention strategy focused on localization and capacity development through partnerships, in particular with two national organizations, NAZ (Nutrition Action Zimbabwe) and AA (Africa AHEAD). ACF has increased the size of its mission in the course of last year to adequately respond to the rising humanitarian needs. The country is currently facing one of its worst food security crises in a decade, consecutive poor agricultural seasons, and the aftermath of Cyclone Idai, continued hyperinflation and now, the socio-economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
More than 4 million rural Zimbabweans are in need of urgent action. According to the latest IPC survey, 45% of the rural population is in Crisis or Emergency (Phase 3 and 4) while 29% is Stressed (IPC Phase 2) due to the prolonged lean season, the poor rainfall season, the low production from 2019 as well as the high food prices.
Additionally, the WFP estimates that 3.3 million urban Zimbabweans will be food insecure by the end of the year due to the effects of COVID-19 and drought.
Since the beginning of the year, ACF has focused on emergency programs to provide a multi-sector response to address the immediate needs of the most vulnerable populations. In collaboration with its implementing partners, ACF seeks to guarantee access to basic services and protect livelihoods from further deterioration, through emergency WASH and food security interventions.
ACF, in collaboration with NAZ and AA is pursuing its action primarily through the strengthening of urban and rural households’ cash reserves, with the goal of increasing resilience and reducing negative coping strategies for vulnerable households. ACF is also strengthening and supporting Infection Prevention and Control in health centers in response to the Covid-19 crisis.
