Winter Report 2012 including Malawi trip - Sept-Nov Hunger The harvest in March was dismal again this year, so inevitably hunger is now increasing among the vulnerable as maize stocks run low. Maize Programme We store in special grain bags instead of the traditional dusting with pesticide to kill weevils.  The bags suffocate any weevils without chemicals, but have to be checked regularly as any damage will render them ineffective. Nutrition Hunger The harvest in March was dismal again this year, so inevitably hunger is now increasing among the vulnerable as maize stocks run low. Donate now Practical help Additionally, being concerned about the hungry—especially the plight of the frail elderly—for the first time this year we’ve also bought packs of prepared soya to go along with the maize, and soap—a real luxury if you can’t afford to eat! Acceptance of these leaves has the potential to radically improve the health of both the villagers and the livestock on which they rely to trade for basic necessities.
