Save the Children (UK) would like to thank the Ministry of Health provincial and district offices for approving and facilitating the secondment of the bulk of the staff for the fieldwork and providing the survey team with necessary support and information. Special mention goes to Mr W. Nyamayaro (Mashonaland West Provincial Medical Director) and Mr Mawushe (Kariba District Nursing Officer).

The collaboration and support exhibited by the Nyaminyami Rural District Council and the District Food and Nutrition Management Team who also participated in data collection was greatly appreciated. We could not have conducted the survey without their support.

Thanks are due also to the Department for International Development (DFID), which provided funds for implementation of the nutrition survey as part of the "Emergency Livelihood Support Programme".

Save the Children (UK) is thankful for the hard work and enthusiasm evidenced by the data collection teams who worked long hours under difficult conditions.

Finally, the community leaders, for their co-operation, and the households who participated in the survey receive grateful acknowledgement.
