Appeal for flood relief funds

Zimbabwe’s Department of Civil Protection has appealed for US $550,000 to repair infrastructure including roads and bridges destroyed by flash floods in February, a report on Monday by AlertNet said. Severe flooding hit northern and northeastern Zimbabwe in February, killing 13 people and making 30,000 homeless. Bridges and roads were washed away in the Guruve, Muzarabani and Centenary districts of Mashonaland Central, Mashonaland East, Masvingo and in Tsholotsho district in Matabeleland North province, the report said.
