I STILL HEAR EARTH TREMORS


Regina Dirani (37) from Ngangu, Chimanimani, had her home destroyed by the cyclone. What started as the sound of a heavy truck and then felt like an earthquake lead to the destruction of her house and everything inside. She continues to hear earth tremors each night between 12 midnight and 2 am, a clear sign of mental trauma.

Before the disaster, Regina was earning a living as a cross border trader. However, her identity documents including her passport were lost and she fears being unable to provide for her family. She feels stranded and wants to leave the area as soon as possible but is unable to do so.

She worries about the lack of food and is worried about disease outbreaks like cholera or typhoid, as there is no clean drinking water and all toilets were destroyed. Msf zimbabwe
