Road Traffic Accident, Zimbabwe

On February 14th, 2023, our team experienced a terrible loss when three of our national volunteers were killed in a motor accident in Zimbabwe. We are all in shock at this news.

The thoughts of everyone at VSO are with the families and friends of those who have died or been injured. It is also a particularly difficult time for the entire VSO team of staff and volunteers in Zimbabwe. VSO is supporting all of those directly and indirectly affected.

We confirm that all field activities in Zimbabwe are temporarily suspended from today Wednesday 15th February to February 28th, 2023.

During this period the project office in Harare will remain open to support those affected by the incident.
