World Bank to loan Zambia money to buy non-GM corn

(Thursday, Sept. 19, 2002 -- CropChoice news) -- The World Bank announced that it will loan money to Zambia to buy non-genetically modified corn to feed nearly 3 million people facing famine. The World Food Program estimates that the country has only two weeks longer before it will run out of the non-genetically engineered food it had been feeding to people.

Zambian leaders refused donations of gentically engineered U.S. corn.
