1.5 Million People Face Hunger In Zimbabwe

Published
In many villages in Southern Zimbabwe, farmers have lost cattle and crops in the severest drought that has hit the country since 1998.

Midway through the farming season, the fields around the village are normally green at this time of the year but now they lie barren. Local people, who should be looking forward to the harvest in late March, are instead awaiting its failure and wondering how to make do with meagre supplies of food aid.
