With an extreme dry season followed by very heavy rains, crops in Uganda are suffering. This past planting season many in our village planted numerous crops awaiting temperate rains to provide a fruitful harvest. Unfortunately, that rain was replaced with extreme heat and dryness and followed by monsoon rains leaving crops in complete disarray.
At the ROWAN center Pastor Paul planted 9 acres of maize to feed the children at Saturday program. He would normally be able to harvest 30 bags of maize from that crop but will instead harvest 3 bags. Because so many crops have been washed away many in the villages are not able to eat as much or sell their crops for income. We are encouraging everyone to join together to support this community to reduce the burden of this famine.
