China Helps Fight Cholera in Zimbabwe

From BusinessDay (Zimbabwe):

China has promised to assist Zimbabwe with the latest crisis to hit the beleaguered African nation: a severe cholera outbreak. China has pledged $500,000 of vaccines for Zimbabwe. Reuters has reported that the crisis is due to worsen:

The World Health Organisation (WHO) said last week the outbreak would likely to continue due to water shortages and poor sanitation facilities in the country, whose infrastructure has collapsed under the burden of a severe economic crisis.
