Over 2 million Zimbabwe under threat of hunger next year-UN


United Nations agency has warned that food security in the southern African country has continued to deteriorate making over two million people in Zimbabwe vulnerable for food assistance by early next year.
World Food Programme (WFP) spokesperson Elisabeth Byrs made this statement while briefing  reporters in Geneva, and insisted that the food security situation is at its worst since 2009, with the national maize harvest being less than last year’s 1 million metric tons, and less than the country’s requirement of 2.1 million metric tons.
The Government of Zimbabwe, NaijaAgroNet was informed has requested international support for food assistance to meet the growing needs to which WFP is launching a relief programme in the worst-affected areas and gradually scale up assistance over coming months.
“WFP and partners will begin food distributions and will expand its operations until the end of March when the next harvest comes. Three distributions will start in three districts of Midlands and Matabeleland North provinces, and will be scaled up to 19 districts in November, 38 in December, and 41 districts from January to March,” Byrs said.

  5. You fill your growing container with soil and moisten lightly. I have used old fish totes. (I used to work in a gourmet market with a fish department I managed, so theses were a dime a dozen and have many uses). Sprinkle your soaked seeds evenly across the moist soil.
