1: Welcome to Zimbabwe. officially the Republic of Zimbabwe | Zimbabwe
4: Dear, Mom There isn’t a lot I can tell you about what I’m doing during my time in Zimbabwe but AID/HIV is a huge problem here. Population in Zimbabwe is 12 million. The average life of a woman that is affected with AIDS is 47 years of age. In 2007 alone 1,300,000 people are living with AIDS. 680,000 are under the age of 15th. Family can’t pay for the treatment, and meds are hard to come by. Love, Jimmy
5: Dear, Mom I have just landed into Zimbabwe. I am staying in a small town. A very run down town, but it does its job. When I first got to the town I had to get my money converted. Now remember economy of Zimbabwe has shrunk significantly after 2000. After 2000 Zimbabwe had a widespread poverty, 94% unemployment. Zimbabwean dollar was the official currency of Zimbabwe between 1980 and 12 April 2009. When I got my money back I was surprised! August 2006 at the rate of 1 revalued dollar = 1000 old dollars. September 2007 to give an official exchange rate of ZW$30,000 to US$1. Money value is nothing like at home. Love, Jimmy
7: Hyperinflation 2003-2009 | Prices doubling every 1.3 days August 2006, a new revalued Zimbabwean dollar, equal to 1000
11: Large parts of Zimbabwe were once covered by forest | Poverty, population growth and lack of fuel have led to extensive deforestation | Poaching
13: Zimbabwe world's biggest tobacco exporter | $430 million in 1994
14: Zimbabwe has limited clear water. 90" of rainfall a year Most of the drinking water is polluted. Families stall in line for water.
15: Dear, Mom I have been in Zimbabwe for about six months now. Sorry I haven’t called or wrote a lot lately. Yesterday I stood in line for three hours for water. Now I know I sound crazy because you just turn on the water in your kitchen or bathroom, but water is hard to come by in Zimbabwe. Basically, Zinwa is failing to provide potable water to residents all the time. Animal waste, fertilizer, municipal, industrial and mining wastewaters have run off into the drinking water. All the runoff has impaired Zimbabwe National Water Authority’s capacity of the growing areas of Zimbabwe. Food processing industries and other industries are discharging waste that contains pathogens. Pathogens are infectious agent, or more commonly known as a germ. Pathogens causes’ disease to people and animals they eat. I know im most likely scaring you but this is what Zimbabwe is like. Zimbabwe needs a lot of help.
