Food for this year in Zambia
Penelope visits one of the family gardens which were planted to provide food for this year. A household garden can provide food before the rains arrive when the fields can be planted. The people displaced by floods lost their fields, homes and gardens and are having to start again. Eighteen people have been helped with gardens.
Twenty five elderly people of Chipokosa village have been helped with food.
Distributions to groups of 15 to 25 take place as and when we have raised money for these people in Zambia.
The distribution is helping the people in this area displaced by flooding as they re-settle.
It is winter in the southern hemisphere and cold at night in Zambia. Ten of the elderly people came back to request help with blankets. Blankets cost about £20 each.
