Beitbridge district Disaster Risk Reduction committee

With funding from the European Union's Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid unit (ECHO), Save the Children in partnership with Oxfam and International Rescue Committee  have been implementing the Ready to Act project in Beitbridge and Matobo districts of Zimbabwe. The disaster risk reduction project has registered tremendous success as communities, schools and authorities are now prepared to respond and translate early warning signals into early action to save lives and livelihoods.

Andrew Ndlovu, Disaster Risk Reduction committee chairperson for Malala ward says "The community has changed, they now know what to do whether it's wind or rain, they know where to go. We thank ECHO for this programme and for the Ready to Act education. We are ready to act!"
