ZUNA partnered with AquaPlus an Indian company involved in the manufacturing of water filters and WASH equipment and sent down a team to Chimanimani to donate water filters which were installed at a school and a clinic an donated Chlorine tablets. ZUNA also did a needs assessment which was featured in the NANGO monthly newspaper which helped shed some more light on the desperate situation of the Chimanimani people.
