We are nearly 1/3 of the way to our goal of $10,000 thanks to a generous friend who donated to me directly. That’s always an option, by the way. However it comes, we are most grateful!
The rainy season is finally beginning to pass, and the weather is warming. Joseph has purchased bean seeds, and has packaged them for distribution to the farmers who will be replanting. In this video, he is calling people up by name to receive their beans, and some are also receiving hoes to replace those washed away in the flood. As you can see, the farmers are mostly women, and some of the hardest working people on the planet.
Joseph updated me this morning:
“This phase is done and next now would be vulnerables: elderly women and men, people with disabilities, expectant mothers, households headed by children. So far, we focused just on a few farmers in just two villages, Musasa and Kasithu, then 7 beneficiaries from Kyarumba town. So there’s other villages from hills to River Nyamugasani where they were having farms for food crops while staying at their high grounds. I will still look at other villages with its women who were cultivating food crops around valley. But first, we will take care of the vulnerables.”
