It was only 2008 when Zimbabwe faced one of the worst economic collapses in history. For years, the country was a major tobacco producer. The appropriation of almost all commercial farms and the reduction on the demand for tobacco led to sharp falls in production in the agriculture-based economy. The country has since endured rampant inflation and critical food and fuel shortages. Today, 32% of children suffer from stunting due to malnutrition. Many Zimbabweans survive on grain handouts, and the poorest people are fighting for the little resources available.
