Home » General » Written question – Urgent need for food aid in Chiredzi – E-006920/2016

In rural Chiredzi, 53 000 families are in urgent need of food aid as hunger continues to worsen in the Masvingo province. The province is one of the regions hardest hit by the El Niño-induced drought which affected Zimbabwe in the last rain season. Continued support is needed to reduce suffering among the affected communities and allow them to engage towards resilience building and climate change adaptation programmes.

Is the Commission considering giving assistance to the families in Chiredzi who are in urgent need of food aid?
