Webinar Covid-Café: How about COVID-19 in… Zimbabwe?

ICCO & KUNO invite you to the online Covid-Café on Zimbabwe on Thursday 26 November, 14:00 CET.

Webinar Covid-Café: How about COVID-19 in… Zimbabwe?

Zimbabwe is hampered by an acute food crisis and a government that uses the pandemic to further crack down civil rights (with penalties up to 20 years prison for providing ‘false’ info). How does Corona affect a society that is already suffering from social economic hardship (with inflation rates over 800 percent) and human rights under pressure?

Speakers:

  • Elizabeth Kovandzhiyski, Programme Officer for South Africa and Zimbabwe, ICCO.
  • Maria Tendai Dendere, Director Humanitarian and Development Services, Zimbabwe Council of Churches.
  • Kuitakwashe Nhongo, Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist, Zimbabwe Council of Churches.

The Covid-Café on Zimbabwe will be co-hosted by ICCO and KUNO through Zoom. You can register here.

About Covid-Café’s

This webinar is part of a new series of Covid-Café’s by KUNO. What are the specific challenges in several countries? What innovative solutions did humanitarians develop? How do local civil society organizations and international NGOs cope?

In the rather informal setting of the Covid-Café’s, we discuss challenges and opportunities. We invite participants to come forward with their questions and remarks. We seek to learn from the experience of humanitarians in different parts of the world. And we certainly hope to meet you in the next Covid-Café.

 

As of 1st January 2021 ICCO has joined forces with Cordaid and continues as one organization under the name Cordaid.

ICCO’s international website will remain online for the time being and can be visited here or go to Cordaid: www.cordaid.org
