Generating Income Through Food

Vocational Training Programme, Jordan

 

The food project is continuing to benefit many families. We are trying to order food from several families to provide certain items/meals according to their cooking skills and culture. We even ordered some homemade seasonal fruit jams from Amira* (from Syria).

Healthy Diet During the Pandemic

Ezbit el Amir Village, Egypt

 

Because of the coronavirus crisis, we can’t have gatherings with the women, nor can we visit them in their homes. So, we decided to call each woman personally to check on her.
 

I called on Safiya* to check on her and her children. She told me they’re all doing fine and that she remembers all of the lessons she attended in the centre, like the lesson about the importance of vegetables, especially garlic.

Making a Big Impact During a Time of Great Need

First of all, the villagers are grateful for the support of GHNI, which enabled us to reach many families. We are committed to expanding our reach and serving more people.

 

Pakistan currently has 18,669 official patients of coronavirus, but estimates say it is more than 40,000. There are full or partial lockdowns across the country that keep affecting the poor in the country.

Supporting Families During the Crisis

Upper Egypt Village Cluster, Egypt

 

We are continuing to provide some grocery bags to those who have lost their jobs. Last week we learnt from the committee in Taha Village about a widow whose daughter is suffering from cancer, yet who did not visit the hospital due to the coronavirus.
 

It's a very bad and emotional time for the family. We visited the woman and provided food, and we coordinated with a doctor to provide necessary aid and medical assistance.

Concerned about Food Security?

The current pandemic is an event no one could have ever been completely prepared for. From lay-offs to empty grocery store shelves, food security is an issue that persists in a global crisis and beyond it. While there are many things that cannot be changed, you can start taking actions to be prepared for now and the future. Through at-home gardening, you can combat food shortages, decrease your daily food spend, eat healthier and even bond with your family. Here are two options to start your home garden.

 

Farmers to Fight Malnutrition

*Valley of Ali, Afghanistan

 

We had a cold winter in Yakawlang this year, and even though it is springtime, the trees haven't budded, yet.  Presently, we have distributed more than 16,000 poplar cuttings! As we give the cuttings to the local farmers, we also teach them how to plant hybrid poplars. So far, 20 farmers have been trained this year.
