Children are usually the victims of conflicts conducted by adults around the world. Of the 12 million people in Zimbabwe suffering from the humanitarian crisis and violent political corruption, the country’s youngest citizens are being harmed the most. Now one American man is trying to make a difference, one child at a time.
Matthew Jacobs of Kansas City, MO volunteered his time with Save the Children – Zimbabwe to start up a Facebook group page to raise money and awareness about the plight of suffering Zimbabwean children. On the page he updates it with the latest information relating to the food shortage and Morgan Tsvangirai, president of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC). Group members can also donate money to Save the Children through the page.
