According to a Tuesday press release from the British High Commission, 1.6 million dollars will be spent on health and nutrition activities aimed at reducing mortality and morbidity rates among under-fives. This money is to be channelled via the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), which is working with the World Food Programme (WFP) and various NGOs, in reducing vulnerability in districts seriously affected by drought.
