A U.N. official is warning that Zimbabwe is on the brink of starvation, with millions facing food insecurity.
Hilal Elver, U.N. special rapporteur on the right to food, said Thursday that the government must reduce Zimbabwe’s dependence on imported food and increase self-sufficiency to counter effects of the struggling economy and recurring drought.
Orpah Chiwashira, founder of Faith Community Support, a charity that provides meals to those in need, said Zimbabwe’s struggling economy was taking a toll.
