More than 3 000 Cyclone Idai Survivors, who lost their identity documents during the Idai disaster, have been issued with new documents after the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) offered support to the Registrar Generals’ office.

The identity documents programme which started in Chimanimani is now being extended to Chipinge.

“From 01 September, we embarked on the process to replace lost documents in Chimanimani to ensure that people do not end up stateless. We are now moving on to Chipinge,” said Kaninda.

Chimanimani West Legislator, Joshua Sacco commended UNHCR and the Registrar General’s office for the assistance and called for continued support.
