Signs of hunger in Saidi Sani Village

There is fear that  people in Saidi Sani village will face hunger if rain will not come in few days coming. A visit on 5 January by the coordinator of Get Up Stand Up Project, Henry Goster can reveal.

No rain: many fields has dried up

Farmers in Saidi Sani village planted with the first rains in November but since that time rains haven’t come and this has caused all the crops in their fields to wilt. One of the affected members of group, Tchaston Gwetsani has said that he will have to replant but his only worry is that he has lost his fertilizer he obtained from the project because he applied it already in his one Acre field.

Mary Matebule is also one of the farmers whose field has been affected but she said she will not remove her crops because she has already applied fertilizers.

Said Sani is a group of 10 members who grow different type of crops.

Henry Goster said that his office will look into the matter on how they can help the farmers who have been affected by the dry spell which has also affected some of the villages in Balaka District.
