    Help is beginning to arrive after cyclone Idai tore through Zimbabwe, causing landslides and collapsing homes.

    Soldiers are surveying the damage in the town of Chimanimani district, where roads have been cut off.

    The cyclone has ruined farmers, whose crops had already been affected by a bad drought.

    Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa reports from Chimanimani, Zimbabwe.
