Update on Mozambique Tete-Mutarara Program

Update on Mozambique Tete-Mutarara Program, JUNE 2013:

Disaster response measures by World Renew and local partner IRM-RDD did not require food-for-work, as people are still able to eat from the previous season's harvest and there was still time to re-plant for the winter season. The 47 tons of emergency seed aid provided by World Renew include maize, tomato, onion, cabbage, rape, okra and pumpkin seeds. Farmers who lost 50% or more of their planted crops received 10 kg of maize seed and 90 gm of a variety of vegetable seeds in time to allow them to plant their crops in anticipation of a harvest in 3 months. When World Renew's staff visited some of the affected farms in early May, farmers had already replanted where the water had receded.
