WESTPORT, Conn., Oct. 15, 2002 - On the eve of World Food Day, Save the Children, a leading global development and relief organization, is urging the Bush Administration and U.S. Congress to prioritize three strategic areas in the FY2003 and FY2004 foreign assistance budgets to help prevent food shortages in the developing world, such as the one ravaging the lives of more than 14 million people, most of them women and children, in southern Africa.
Around 14 million people are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance as a result of the food insecurity crisis that is spreading across southern Africa. The International Save the Children Alliance is launching an appeal to provide a long-term, targeted response in Angola, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe
Save the Children UK said today that UN food aid plans to ensure 13 million people in Southern Africa do not go hungry have been compromised by a seriously flawed assumption.
Save the Children UK (SCUK) is calling on delegates at this week's meeting convened by the UN on the Southern Africa food crisis to come up with a clear and realistic plan on how to prevent a tragedy on a massive scale.
