WFP: British company Cushy Tax Ltd donated $3.39 million to fight drought in Zambia

The United Nations World Food Program today welcomed and thanked Cushy Tax Ltd of the United Kingdom for donating $3.39 million to help address drought in Zambia. The donation will be used to purchase 2,380 tons of pulses, which will meet some of the most urgent food needs of the affected population over the next three months.
