WFP Appeals for Funds to Avert Hunger in Zimbabwe

The WFP appeals for US$87 million to avert starvation in Zimbabwe’s rural areas

The United Nations’ World Food Programme (WFP) is appealing for US$87 million to avert starvation in Zimbabwe’s rural areas where close to two million people need food aid.

The UN agency says because of poor rainfall, this year's hunger season in Zimbabwe has started earlier than in the past.

Liliana Yovcheva of the WFP programme office in Zimbabwe says her organisation is facing an US$87 million deficit as it tries to ease the food shortage, adding that, “This year, the needs are much higher than in the last three years."
