UNICEF Appealing For $6M To Continue Water Treatment In Zimbabwe

UNICEF on Wednesday said it needs $6 million to continue treating water in Zimbabwe, which does not have the funds to do it on its own, Deutsche Presse-Agentur/M&C reports. Peter Salama, UNICEF’s representative in Zimbabwe, said the agency is appealing for funds that would allow it to continue to purchase water treatment chemicals through March 2012. UNICEF has been assisting the country since a 2008 cholera outbreak killed thousands of people (6/1).
