World Food Program Receives Additional $5M for Food Assistance to Zimbabwe

Published on 25 January 2010

The United Nations has given the World Food Program another five million dollars for its feeding programs in Zimbabwe, amid reports that the government will boost cereal imports to offset looming maize shortages due to drought. The World Food Program's spokesman for Southern Africa, Richard Lee, told VOA the new funding should “make a large difference” in hitting the organization's Zimbabwe funding target of US$20 million.
