35 villages have demonstration drip irrigation

ASAP in Zimbabwe has received 35 drip irrigation kits, thanks to the funding received from the Rural Family Health Initiative project so far. Regai Tsunga, Zimbabwe Country Director, is happy to report that these kits are now installed and dripping! 35 community leaders have received training in use and maintenance of the kits and are busy establishing demonstration gardens to help gain acceptance and understanding in their village. Each of these women have identified ten of the neediest families in their area to receive a drip irrigation kit soon.

These are the families caring for the greatest number of orphans or plagued by unusually difficult circumstances. Commonly, the selected recipient will be a granny or “go go” living in rural Zimbabwe. As middle-aged working parents, once resident in the cities, die from HIV/AIDS related illness, surviving children are commonly sent to distant relatives in the rural areas. Life is less expensive here. Survival depends on crop production.

By the end of September, if further funding is received for this project, these extremely needy families will be in a position to not only feed these orphans, but have surplus crops to fund school fees and other needs. Your donation is appreciated…
