April Floods Destroy Crops around Salima

May 13th, 2011

There was quite bad flooding at several of our Tuesday Trust projects in Salima, Malawi last month, with rice and bean crops the worst affected. Some of the village areas which have had flooding include Mhoka, Kandulu, Magumbwa and Lifidzi. Even after the waters subsided, the silty mud residue has undone all the women’s fantastic, hard work.

Kennie, our project manager has taken some shots to show the aftermath. We are working with the groups there to get their food sustenance gardens going again.
