Our local partner organization MHDO has already arranged trainings. Since that the families know what matters for gardening and how to compost, how to fertilize biologically and how to combats the pests. Now they are in fund of the required tools. Ideally they plant their gardens as raised beds, as the soil in the Irrawaddy Delta is over salted and often flooded over wide areas.
The current distribution of gardening tools is one component of our extensive project in the region, what targets the security of supply as well as the disaster preparedness. The situation of the residents in the Irrawaddy Delta is even 8 years after hurricane Nargis still precarious. The majority of the families lead a hand-to-mouth existence, the earnings of fishing, shrimp and rice farming are barely sufficient. Furthermore they are threatened by the high risk of steady moderate or heavy natural disasters.
You can find the overview of all our project activities on the project site.
To provide sustainable help to the people in the Irrawaddy Delta we depend on donations.
