A United Nations agency said a drought caused by El Niño led to the eradication of agricultural crops across Zimbabwe and made about a third of its 15 million people in need of food aid.

The situation worsened when Hurricane Idai swept through Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Malawi last month, leaving hundreds of thousands in need of food, water and shelter..

A document distributed by the Ministry of Information to journalists showed that the government was seeking assistance of about $ 300 million for the purchase of foodstuffs, while the remainder would be allocated to finance the establishment of emergency shelters and logistical needs, among others.

Hundreds of people have died in Mozambique and Malawi and 344 people have died in Zimbabwe.
