This is a chronicle of Laurie Adam’s visit to Oxfam’s Zimbabwe programme

Stunning spring, turning to summer but climate change causing hardship for farmers. Increased mining income not benefiting miners or communities, and uncertainty and burn out post election demoralising many. The trip includes a visit to Ruti, where there are partnerships on livelihoods includes irrigation, training on climate resilience agriculture, and solar power. The team also visits Gweru, to see work on water, sanitation, and hygiene to prevent cholera and other diseases, The last stop is Shurugwi, a beautiful mining town with appalling conditions for mines and their families.
