US Govt Has Given Over US$3 Billion Aid To Zim Since 1980
The United States of America (US) insists that it has continued supporting the Zimbabwean people in spite of the targeted sanctions imposed on the country’s political and military elites.
The US says that it has, since 1980, poured more than US$3 billion into Zimbabwe to improve health and food security.
The US gain reiterated its stance that Zimbabwe’s economic problems are not a result of sanctions but harmful policies. In a statement released on Monday, the US said:
Since 1980 our commitment to the Zimbabwean people is unchanged: Over $3 bn to improve health, food security, economic resilience and democratic governance. Delivery on promised political and economic reforms will allow us to do even more.
Many years of harmful policies, not U.S. sanctions, have led to Zimbabwe’s current economic challenges. We recognize Zimbabwe is making difficult economic decisions with limited resources in order to improve Zimbabwe’s trajectory.
