Humanitarian Agencies In Race With Hunger In Zimbabwe

Zimbabweans have been living with food shortages for years, but the outlook through the first quarter of next year is more alarming than ever before.

The National Association of Non-Governmental Organizations said recently that a national emergency should be declared - but for the domestic and international organizations monitoring and projecting food security in the country the emergency is all too well established.

Despite the dire outlook, aid continues to flow in from abroad, reported Patience Rusere of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe.

A British-based organization has committed 50,000 British pounds to provide seed to 118 families and three primary schools in the Mberengwa district of Midlands province.

Christian Aid Africa Specialist Judith Melby outlined the program to reporter Brenda Moyo.
