Visit To Zimbabwe By Executive Director Of The United Nations World Food Programme

During her stay, she will visit a WFP programme providing food assistance to people living with HIV receiving treatment at Beatrice Road Infectious Diseases Hospital in Harare.

WFP currently provides seasonal relief to 1.2 million people in food-insecure areas of rural Zimbabwe. In addition to assisting people living with HIV, WFP provides nutritional support to malnourished pregnant women, nursing mothers and children under five years of age.

As a longer-term response to food insecurity in Zimbabwe, WFP has a Cash/Food-for- Assets programme to strengthen people’s resilience to shocks such as drought and flooding.
