Feeding the village
The people of Putti decided to plant maize and soya this last October, as these contribute to a major part of the African diet. In years gone by, before Putti had land of their own, they just had to hope that somehow food would arrive, it didn’t. Meaning that every year they suffered from famine. Sometimes, so bad that adults would only have enough to enable them to eat one meal a day, on alternate days, children were restricted to small portions of whatever was around, causing severe malnutrition.
Now thankfully, that is something we pray will not happen again. Yes, there is still a shortage of food but with maize and soya crops growing well, no-one should go hungry. The crops will be harvested in February, then stored and distributed to the most needy during lean times.
The next Food Project is on it’s way, the Putti land is fertile but until money is raised to buy more seeds the harvest is relatively small. Please donate just $10 or whatever you can, which will ultimately feed a child during their most needy times.”
Thank you so much for your interest and kindness.
