EU Donates EUR3 Million For Zimbabweans Facing Starvation

The European Union has donated EUR3 million to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to assist Zimbabweans facing starvation.


The funding will be used to support highly vulnerable people living in urban communities who are struggling to meet basic food needs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The contribution, made through the EU’s Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations Department (ECHO), will come in the form of cash assistance used to support beneficiaries of WFP’s Urban Social Assistance and Resilience Building Programme.

Recipients will receive USD12 per person, per month via either e-voucher or Western Union cash transfer – to help cover basic food needs such as maize meal, cooking oil and salt.
