Mozambique: WFP Needs 10 Million US Dollars for Food Aid
The World Food Programme (WFP) needs between eight and ten million US dollars to maintain until December its food aid programme in Mozambique, which assists half a million people. WFP representative Lola de Castro told the Maputo paper "Noticias", "let us try to buy now at harvest time when there is a surplus in the north of the country. This will also help farmers marketing their produce. Some districts in Tete have had a good harvest this year. It is places like these where we are trying to buy produce for distribution in the coming months".
