Zimbabwe girls trade sex for food
Growing numbers of children in Zimbabwe are turning to prostitution to survive, the charity Save the Children says.
The aid agency says increasing poverty is leading girls as young as 12 to sell their bodies for as little as a packet of biscuits.
It also claims that the coming football World Cup in neighbouring South Africa could soon make things worse.
Unemployment in Zimbabwe is thought to top 90% and many cannot afford to pay for food, medical care or school fees.
The deputy head teacher of a large school east of Victoria Falls told the BBC that hundreds of her female students are now selling their bodies for whatever they can get.
This is shamefull, its horrible and unfortunatly truthfull
