NE conducts brilliant work with a community in Nicaragua that has been dramatically affected by flooding last month, losing 70% of their main investments which are their bean crops. The flooding and crop damage was so bad that the government declared a calamity and the UN made an emergency appeal for relief. NE is in a position to continue and expand one of their existing projects growing family gardens, which will alleviate some of the food shortage.We would like to help.
Because of the recent flooding, most of the farmers have lost their store of beans that they usually count on to feed themselves through the next 8 months and many men will likely need to look for work outside of the country. The family gardens project will provide seeds and technical assistance to as many families as possible. This will not solve the crisis, but it will alleviate some of the food shortage and enable the women to immediately provide for their families if the men have to leave for work.
We would like to cover the cost of supplying seeds and assistance to 10 families. This would cover the salaries of the Nicaraguan NE workers,their transportation to the community, and the materials.
Let's do it!!
