Notes
"The Diocese of Central Zimbabwe is planning an extensive food relief programme as the region is suffering a fourth year of major food shortages." The diocese set up extensive HIV/AIDS programmes in 2003. An average of "two parishioners die of AIDS every month per parish. This translates into three people every day." Mr. Peter Kwaramba is the diocesan communications officer and also in charge of the St. Patrick's HIV/AIDS action programme also known as PATHAID. The programme works for "HIV/AIDS prevention, but also to deal with its contingent problems, including support for the terminally ill, orphaned and marginalised children, and for families in general. `The project sees HIV/AIDS as a developmental problem and tackles it prevention, care and support ... with empowerment ... spiritual and economic', said Mr. Kwaramba. The only problem with ensuring the project worked, he added, was a lack of funds and a vehicle".
