Food aid beneficiaries in Bulawayo increase from 14 000 to 19 000

Food aid beneficiaries in Bulawayo have increased from 14 000 to 19 000 with the province computerising it’s data base to avoid double allocations.

Bulawayo Provincial Administrator Mrs Khonzani Ncube said the registration and verification exercise was a continuous process and she hoped that by March next year, they would have registered about 30 000 vulnerable people. Ncube said the province has introduced a card system and computerised its food beneficiary database to avoid cases of double allocations.

The province’s food aid programme is not being supported by any non-governmental organisation in food aid provision. She said they had received 2 000 metric tonnes of rice that has been distributed to local institutions that support the vulnerable.
