World Vision responds to political changes in Zimbabwe

Following the political changes in Zimbabwe this morning, Emmanuel Isch, World Vision Zimbabwe National Director, said:

“World Vision urges a peaceful resolution of the current crisis in Zimbabwe.

“Our experience of responding to crises around the world is that these often divide communities and primarily affect children and women, causing physical and emotional suffering. This harm to children and women is not only immediate but can be potentially long-lasting. World Vision is committed to working with the government, communities and others who have an ongoing focus on the well-being of children and the overall development of Zimbabwe.”

“A lack of peace and stability has the potential to set back development by years, undermine trust between communities and harm a generation of children.”
