We have been able to go out and see the extent of the damage after Agatha. It is believed that all the maiz crops, for the staple tortillas, have been pretty much destroyed. Following on from last year's disastrous crop, this doesn't bode well for the rest of the year.
Thanks to fundraising by previous and current volunteers, we have been able to buy emergency food for each family, and will undertake a seed scheme for the families, looking further into the future, and also repairing structural damage and looking at ways to prevent the housing damage in the future.
