WFP to feed 80,000 after Mozambique floods

Date Published: 

The World Food Programme (WFP) will give emergency food to more than 80,000 people in Mozambique after twin cyclones left 32 dead in the impoverished country in January, officials said Tuesday. Mozambique's government requested help for 16,000 families in flood-hit central province Zambezia, said WFP spokeswoman Naomi Scott. "Approximately 16,000 families -- that's what we've been asked to supply for and that will be in Zambezia tomorrow," Scott told AFP. "That's over 80,000 people."
