Training, Kits, and Gardens Aid Villagers

Sindh Province, Pakistan

 

In the province of Sindh, many people do not have TV or smartphones and illiteracy is prevalent. Since the coronavirus came to Pakistan, we have given villagers simple instructions about how to avoid catching or passing on COVID-19. We have also given out hygiene kits (which consist of soap, a towel, gloves, a face mask, and literature) in 30 different villages, reaching nearly 3,000 people.

Jatapara Village, India

 

In the month of June, villagers here cultivate corn. By the time the crops are ready to harvest, wild boar destroy these crops, causing huge losses for the farmers. So this year we suggested that farmers try cultivating pigeon peas (arhar/toor) instead of corn. As the boars do not destroy these crops, there is a reduced risk of loss.
