In October, the World Food Programme received the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize.
In April, WFP had inspired us to start a microcredit project for small farmers in Ghana. In 1.5 months we received generous donations and invested Euro 25K in the production of rice, beans and peas. All 115 participating farmers planted and -thanks to the rains- all crops are standing tall (Nov 16th).
By December, we hope to have added 200,000 kilo’s of food. We hope to go for expansion and institutionalization of this international cooperation when the next sowing season is due early 2021.
Food is likely to become scarce and expensive, leading to deep suffering and death of the poorest.
Can we do something? … YES, WE CAN!
