Some Zimbabweans See Only More Pain as Prices Fall

By: MacDonald Dzirutwe

After the government of Zimbabwe decided to get rid of the local dollar whose value had been destroyed by inflation, goods have finally begun to reappear in stores and prices are falling. But some Zimbabweans are finding it even harder to make a living because they now have to survive solely off their allowance. People can no longer sell on the black market either, but some are being resourceful and selling the old, worthless Zimbabwe dollars to tourists for as much as $20. The government is seeking $5 billion for long-term recovery, which relies on the satisfaction of Western donors that Zimbabwe is on the road to stability. Unemployment in Zimbabwe is over 90 percent, and three million people have already left the country in search of other jobs.

I saw your post for a volunteer photographer on idealist.org (http://www.idealist.org/if/i/en/av/VolunteerOpportunity/151401-133/c) and had a few questions.

1) Are you still looking for volunteers?

2) Is the Wed night volunteer meeting mentioned in the posting a weekly event?

3) What kind of assignments are you guys generally in need of?

Cheers,

Ben (ben at bdarfler dot com)

Humanity is the need of present times. There is suffering because there is no one to help. An insight is important.
