Summary: 

The World Food Program (WFP) says it is currently providing food assistance to more than 1.4 million Zimbabweans as hunger worsens in provinces affected by a two-year drought and heavy rains this year. WFP deputy country director Abdurrahim Siddiqui told VOA Studio 7 food insecurity in Zimbabwe for the 2012/2013 consumption year is comparatively worse than the last three years. He said WFP will continue providing help to the needy under the current seasonal targeted assistance program until the end of this month.
