This year´s harvests have once again been very poor unfortunately and much is being relied upon a good coffee harvest later in the year to help this issue. Inclement weather has also played its part and food is very scarce. It is hoped we can prepare for 2013 with some more donations in the bank to head of potential hunger and food shortages so that we can at least feed the children daily with rice and beans and fruit which is so important. For only $1000 a month, this is possible and heads off a potential food crisis in the region would be awful.
The more donations we can get, the more we can a) implement a regular food program and b) introduce alternative farming techniques which aren't so susceptible to changes in climate, as we have seen recently. Discussions will be held with the communtiy before the next year's crop cycle and we will go from there, depending on the available funds we have.
As you know, by providing the farmers with seeds will help them feed their families and communities, with wide ranging benefits affected over 1000 people. Thank you once again for all of your kind donations which are helping this cause.
