As you will probably know many SSA subsistence farmers are going hungry.
Their last harvest failed and they need suitable seeds to survive much longer.
Recently two Ugandan farmers accepted to visit Oxfam and MMC to plead for help.
Both were rejected! The reason?
They did not want to try and turn their farms into a business!
All they wanted was a few kilos of beans!
Here is what one wrote to me;
Am sorry, very sorry I don’t know why This organization dont want help hungry people.people are starving a lot even dying because no food to eat, then they tell me , they want verify this people my list then next year they help with farming tools and form groups of women for VSLAs .
that is very far many people next year will die. and mostly women all will die and children.
i don’t know what to do now and stressed am confused i dont know.
every where i pass peoples are crying.
