Britain helps Zimbabwe amid food crisis

The U.K. offered USD17.8 million to help Zimbabweans affected by food shortfalls. It will channel the funds through the World Food Program, which will use most of the money to distribute food to more than four million people in the African nation. Part of the money will also be used to ensure that the agency’s monitoring mechanisms are immune from political interference and that the aid reaches the target beneficiaries.
