Zimbabwe is a landlocked country located in the southern part of Africa. It is a country whose name is composed of three words. "Zi" means "big" or "huge". "Mba" means "house". "Bwe" means "stone". The name comes from the Great Zimbabwe Monuments situated in the city of Masvingo. These monuments are huge stone structures built during the Iron Age by the Bantu people of the Zimbabwe plateau.

History of the Liahona Children's Foundation in Zimbabwe

In 2013, members from the Liahona Children's Foundation visited Zimbabwe. During that time, BYU interns screened children in five stakes and one district and hired coordinators in each unit to manage the program. The LCF nutrition program started distributing children's nutritional supplements in Zimbabwe in July of 2014 to the 500 children enrolled in the program. The supplements, a vitamin enhanced corn/soy blend cereal, are produced for our program by a local manufacturer in Zimbabwe.
