The Land & People of Zimbabwe

Meet Zimbabwe base coordinators— Claimed & Sipho Sibanda

Situated just above South Africa and below Zambia, Zimbabwe is a country in turmoil.  At one time it was a self-sufficient, prosperous country but today its people live in abject poverty and the economy has all but collapsed.  The downfall began when President Mugabe’s government began to remove the white people from their prime farmlands in 2000.  These farms were parceled out to subsistence farmers who had no resources to continue making the farms prosper. This land redistribution has caused staggering economic decline and mass food shortages.  The inflation rate is incalculable. The majority of Zimbabweans live in poverty and are barely able to afford basic necessities, such as food.  Simple things such as bread, meat and toilet paper are unaffordable luxuries.  Of the 13 million Zimbabweans, around 80% are unemployed.  Indigenous beliefs and Christianity are the two major religions in Zimbabwe.
