Mathias - Zimbabwe

“I feel it's hard to trust in nature anymore. The past three years have been so unpredictable."

“It feels that anything can happen nowadays. And now after this cyclone the situation is very bad.”

Mathias lives in an area hit by last month’s Cyclone Idai. “I have four grandchildren to feed, and though I go out now every day in order to find something, there are days that we go through without eating at all."
