Mid Year Report

Children's meal

We completed the farming project with some troubles.  There was a drought in Mali this year and just like all other farmers, our project suffered the effects of the drought.  The harvest was not the greatest because of the drought, but we have made enough harvesting to help support the children feeding.  This will free up scarce resources for other programs such as health care, education etc...  In addition due to the drought, food prices have increased tremendously.  Currently while we are gettting ready for the next rainy season, we are growing vegetables in our garden to feed the children.

    Jaime What an unjustice that global warming affects so badly on the people who have the less to do with it!

    Kadiatou Sidibe I agree it is very unjust and sad. But thanks to your support we can alleviate the impact on the children. I can only imagine the impact of the drought on the children that are still living on the streets of Bamako. We can never thank you enough for your support.
