More Than Half of Zimbabweans Face Hunger - UN Report

Zimbabwe's food situation is moving from a crisis to an emergency because of El Nino-induced drought and the ongoing economic meltdown, the United Nations said. According to U.N. aid agencies and the government, Zimbabwe needs about U.S.$218 million to stave off hunger for about 5.5 million people between now and April 2020, when the next harvest is expected.
