Food kits distributed in three villages
May 29, 2020

With Covid 19 restrictions having disrupted the food trade throughout West Africa, there have been reports of a looming food crisis. After speaking with our partners on the ground, who assured us they had a good food supply, as well as vegetables from the gardens we helped them set up, we decided to provide additional support as a precaution.

Each household in Sinthian, Dialico, and Fass received a sack of rice or two depending on the family’s size, and fonio and sorghum seeds. In Sinthian, for example, the village has decided to store the rice until at least July.

While everything about the future of the pandemic and its effects remains in flux, we are doing everything we can to ensure our partners have what they need.
