Médecins sans frontières (MSF) is one of the organisations providing medical humanitarian assistance to victims of Cyclone Idai which hit Zimbabwe on 14 March.
MSF director for Zimbabwe Bjorn Nissen explains continued efforts to reach isolated hard-hit villages.
He says while the situation is under control, areas remain vulnerable.
We are now focusing on our next stage which is to administer oral cholera vaccinations.— Bjorn Nissen, Director for Zimbabwe - Medecins Sans Frontieres
We have zero cholera cases in Zimbabwe so far. This is just a precaution. I think it's just a preventive measure that becomes logical after a disaster like this.— Bjorn Nissen, Director for Zimbabwe - Medecins Sans Frontieres
Nissen says MSF is also dealing with issues of mental health following the traumatic experience.
Many family members are still missing.
The death toll in Zimbabwe is currently over 500 and may rise.
