A top UN official recently announced the â€œgreat progressâ€ made in Zimbabweâ€™s road to humanitarian recovery, following a decades-old economic decline.
â€œIt has been refreshing to see great progress in so many aspects that worried us in February. I trust this positive trend will continue,â€ Catherine Bragg, UN assistant secretary general for humanitarian affairs said.

The United Nations asked for additional funds, $378 million dollars (256 million euros) in aid for 2010, saying the humanitarian situation in the country remains â€œfragileâ€.
Bragg met Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai on Wednesday and government ministers. She is expected to meet President Robert Mugabe this week.
Since the formation of the unity government of one-time rivals Mugabe and Tsvangirai, the former opposition leader, hospitals have re-opened and basic services have improved.
