The National University of Science and Technology (NUST) joins the nation in mourning the loss of lives after Cyclone Idai hit the Eastern region of Zimbabwe last week.

NUST extends heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families and wishes a swift recovery to those affected in many ways.

NUST is overwhelmed with the rapid response that local stakeholders have shown towards assisting the communities as all have stood as one, in supporting these families.  

NUST, both staff and students, has mobilised support to these communities in the form of clothing, blankets, toiletries and dried foods.

NUST has also dispatched a team to Chimanimani and Chipinge to assess the situation on the ground, gather facts and proffer immediate and long-term solutions to assist the affected communities. The team consists of experts from Civil and Water Engineering, Town Planning, Landscape, Architecture and Urban Design, and Disaster Risk Management.

NUST has also engaged stakeholders to partner the University to help re-build the communities and their environment once the team validates the extent of the effects of Cyclone Idai.
