WFP plans to distribute food to 700,000 Zimbabweans

The United Nations’ World Food Program (WFP) is planning a food aid program targeting 700,000 people in Zimbabwe from October, Reuters reported, citing an official.

The announcement comes as the effects of a poor harvest and war in Ukraine continue to show.

“The Zimbabwean government is working with agencies to provide food aid to 3.8 million people,” the WFP said.

The southern African country has struggled to feed itself since 2000, under former leader Robert Mugabe.
