Pang’ono Pang’ono Onlus, an association in Italy has through Andiamo Youth Cooperative Trust (AYCT) donated bags of maize to families around Balaka who have been stricken by hunger.
About 600 families will benefit from this benevolence from an association that has for some time now believed in the mission statement of AYCT.
The donation is timely considering that this is the time that families will have to wait a little longer to have their maize mature and this is the time that hunger is painful.
Random interviews to the beneficiaries reveal that people are grateful to Pang’ono Pang’ono Onlus for this good gesture.
Distribution started on Wednesday, 19 February at Chiyendausiku and Mpulula. On Thursday the distribution exercise goes to Toleza and Mbera.
Over 20,000 farming households are food insecure in Balaka following last year’s erratic rains.
