We thrive to eradicate hunger in Zimbabwe through installing a minimum of 200 boreholes across the country by 2025.

Statement of Need

We are excited to announce that Your Church International Global Movement (YCIGM) and Creating New Edens in Africa (CNEIA) has come together to install boreholes in Zimbabwe after the southern African country has been affected by drought. 

Zimbabwe is one of the countries with highest poverty rate in the world.Many households cannot afford to feed themselves due to high food prices exacerbated by the drought that has hit the Southern Africa country.

Lack of rain resulted in poor harvest as the crops dried up in the field.Many subsistence and commercial farmers could not harvest a single grain ,only the few with irrigation systems managed to produce good yields.Food shortage has caused hunger,especially in the rural and marginalized areas of Zimbabwe.The shortage of rain in Zimbabwe has caused much more catastrophe as some areas

are even struggling to get water for drinking.Women and children are walking long distances in search of drinking water.

CNEIA and YCIGM recently installed 10 boreholes in Mashonaland East and another 10  in Matebeleland South which provides drinking water to a minimum of 12 villages.Drip irrigation was installed on a pieces land to be used for training purposes.The irrigated land is

used to train the villagers with an Eco-friendly farming methodology called Farming God's Way.

CNEIA and  YCIGM now seeks to extend it's operations to the driest past of Zimbabwe for people to have access to drinking water.We have identified 5 areas namely Gokwe ,Shurugwi, Muzarabani ,Masvingo , Raffingora and Mhondoro. These areas have serious shortage of water which requires immediate action.The situation has been declared emergency by the civil

societies in Zimbabwe.

Our immediate goal is to install  a total of 60 more  boreholes to reduce the shortage of water in those areas mentioned above. It cost $1800 to install a borehole in Zimbabwe. We are in urgent need of $108 000 to achieve this goals.Your donations towards borehole installation will

save an estimate of 1.5 million people's lives.Each borehole will serve an estimate of 25 000 people.

Back ground to the drought

The disaster, intensified by El Niño, is devastating ,communities across several countries, killing crops and livestock and sending food prices soaring.

An estimated 20 million people in southern Africa are facing what the United Nations calls “acute hunger” as one of the worst droughts in more than four decades shrivels crops, decimates livestock and, after years of rising food prices brought on by pandemic and political instability spikes the price of corn, the

region’s staple crop.

Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe have all declared national emergencies.

It is a bitter foretaste of what a warming climate is projected to bring to a region that’s likely to be acutely affected by climate change, though scientists said on Thursday that the current drought is more driven by the natural weather cycle known as El Niño than by global warming.

Its effects are all the more punishing because in the past few years the region had been hit by cyclones, unusually heavy rains and a widening outbreak of cholera.

‘Urgent help’ is needed

The rains this year began late and were lower than average. In February, when crops need it most,parts of Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Angola, Mozambique and Botswana received a fifth of the

typical rainfall.

That’s devastating for these largely agrarian countries, where farmers rely entirely on the rains.
