The Salvation Army started a project to improve health and nutrition in 12 communities in Zimbabwe. Toilets and sinks with clean drinking water sources have been installed. In addition, school hygiene committees have been set up for teachers where they receive training about hygiene, healthcare and clean food so they, in turn, can teach their students. In all 12 communities, The Salvation Army set up farm gardens and irrigation systems for the communities to grow their own produce. This way, people are enabled to control their food sources, which will reduce the occurrence of diseases as a result of contaminated food.
