Mozambique: More people may need food assistance

Maputo (AIM) - The numbers of people in need of food aid may increase in Mozambique during the next few weeks, due to factors such as the serious drop in household food reserves, the brown streak virus, that attacks cassava crops, and the increase in the prices of basic foodstuffs, hitting peasant families' purchasing power.
The food security data from August 2002 led to estimates that about 587,000 people would need food aid up until March this year.(AIM)
