    The spread of water borne diseases in Zimbabwe, has made the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) team up with the United States to provide a steady supply of clean water to the capital, Harare, and outlying areas. The UN office for the coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), Zimbabwe’s economic crisis has made it impossible to purchase adequate water purification chemicals and as a result, the city could not provide a regualr supply of clean water. A $200,000 grant from the US agency for International Development (USAID), channelled through UNDP, has allowed the purchase of chemicals needed for water purification and made it possible for Harare to increase its clean water stocks to as many as 4 days worth.
