Published on 05 March 2009

The UN World Food Programme (WFP) announced Thursday that it would provide 45,000 tonnes of emergence food aid to 5.2 million Zimbabweans in March but said recipients would continue to get reduced rations to meet the high demand. The UN agency said 4.6 million or nearly 90 percent of the recipients would be from vulnerable groups such as young children and those suffering from diseases like HIV and AIDS.
