The Kesari dam reconstruction project is underway and on schedule to be completed by the start of the next rainy season. The Zimbabwe Medical Project has partnered with rotary clubs in the United States and Bulawayo South Rotary Club to alleviate the effects of devastating water shortages in southern Zimbabwe. These water shortages have been intensified with El Niño and are responsible for the worst drought in living memory in southern Africa. Projections of starvation for up to 25% of children in southern Zimbabwe make the completion of this project particularly timely. It will provide a way for this remote rural community to help solve their own water and food shortages.
