US$43m for Food Relief for Zimbabwe

Britain and the United States have reportedly launched a programme to rescue at least 650 000 Zimbabwean hunger victims.

Britain and the United States have reportedly launched a programme to rescue at least 650 000 Zimbabwean hunger victims, with the two countries pledging to provide up to US$43m for food aid.

This came as the World Food Programme (WFP) says in August that around 1.5 million Zimbabweans were expected to go hungry this year after a dramatic fall in maize production.

Reports indicated that Zimbabwe needed to import at least 700 000 tons of maize from neighbouring countries to avert a food crisis, with analysts saying this would cost the country's cash-strapped treasury around US$224 million.
