Over 2800 households have been affected by tropical Cyclone Idai in Masvingo province, with Bikita district being the worst affected.

Statistics provided from the provincial administration office in Masvingo indicate that 2868 households were reported to have been affected by tropical Cyclone Idai.

 The figures could, however, still rise as communication is still problematic in some areas due to damaged infrastructure.

Of the 2868 affected households, 289 families are currently homeless.

The local leadership is working on acquiring tents for the affected families.

Meanwhile, donations have started pouring in from churches in Masvingo, with corporate organisations being implored to also play their part.
