Bulawayo, 21 April 2017
Yesterday we provided food to Mawusumane, a village in the Matopos Hills. After the unusually heavy rains earlier this year, there was water running everywhere and the baboons, goats and cattle were very happy. The people share in this happiness as they like their animals and respect the wildlife such as monkeys. But unfortunately this rain, and the lack of sunshine during February, was bad for the crops which are no more than knee high with no promise of providing a harvest this season. So our food relief, small as it is, was greatly welcomed. Next week we distribute in Gwedza ward, which is in the dry plains beyond the Matopos Hills.”
