A boy cries at the funeral of his grandmother, who died from cholera
More than 3,000 people have died from the worst outbreak of cholera in Zimbabwe's history, which has infected more than 60,000 people.
The epidemic has been fuelled by the country's economic meltdown, which has led to the collapse of the country's water, health and sanitation systems.
Matthew Cochrane, from the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies is travelling around Zimbabwe this week to see the situation for himself and is keeping a diary for the BBC News website.
Monday, 2 February, Kwekwe
The small clinic at Kwekwe has received 131 cholera patients since last Wednesday.
The clinic - set up to provide basic outpatient services - has been overwhelmed.
On Saturday, when the Red Cross Red Crescent arrived, the building was full to overflowing.
The ward was chaotic: severe cases lay alongside mild cases, and in the midst of it all lay three bodies wrapped in plastic.
One of them wasn't longer than 2ft (0.6m) - a child.
We arrived as the tent was being erected in the clinic's yard by a team of Zimbabwe Red Cross volunteers.
It'll be up and running on Monday, and will provide treatment and medication for the more serious cases.
We jumped back in the car and headed to Tiger Reef, a small mining town about 20 minutes west of Kwekwe.
Almost all of the cases seen at the clinic had come from here and the Zimbabwe Red Cross had decided to focus a lot of their public outreach efforts here.
We met Helen Hawkings from the British Red Cross and joined her as she headed off to the bus stop - the local gathering point on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Red Cross workers are trying to raise awareness about the disease
Information is the key in a cholera outbreak.
The illness is so easy to prevent - it's really just about basic hygiene.
So there is a huge amount of work being done by the Red Cross Red Crescent to sensitise communities to the risks they face, and share with them the simple steps they can take to dramatically reduce these risks.
But Tiger Reef is a mess.
The community hasn't had running water for months - not since the mining company failed to pay the electricity bill - and the only toilets are the modest public ones.
You can imagine what they look like.
The deadly water-borne epidemic has infected more than 60,000 people
A crowd of about 300 people gathered around Helen and two young Red Cross Red Crescent volunteers.
The frustration was palpable.
How, the community asked, can we deal with this cholera, when we don't have toilets and we have to walk 3km (two miles) to the river to get water?
"We know you are frustrated," said Helen. "We know that these frustrations didn't arrive last week. But last week, there was a serious outbreak of cholera.
"Right now, we can't fix the long-term problems, but we can make sure that you don't get sick."
