Hunger and Poverty

George Pindua wrote, 25th May 2017: Love for Others Limited Company started the implementation project for the communities affected with drought and hunger in Mboga, Msoga, and Lugoba villages. LFO Ltd is Nonprofit Company, her office situated in Morogoro Municipality is intended to reduce poverty among the communities. Even though still the mission, LFO is focusing on support small scale farmers in rural area. Since the human beings are facing challenges in these areas, LFO through her directors donated some funds to support people affected with hunger in Lugoba, Msoga and Mboga villages.

Here some stories about the beneficiaries.

Mr and Mrs Seleman Mghumba received bag of flour, both of them are blind people. Unfortunately they are now homeless, because their house was destroyed by the flood two day before receiving the donation.

Difficulties Encountered.
We encountered significant problems and difficulties: 1) because number of families has increased and led to lack of food for some families, and 2) this is due to limited resources we have during the implementation. On the other hand, 3) LFO discovered that some sufferers cannot even read and write and hence a thumb ink print was used as a signature. We also discovered 4) people who are blind in those villages, because they have inadequate health services. Last but not least, we found that 5) the house of the blind couple was destroyed by the flood due to heavy rains just two days before receiving their donation. They are now homeless and they need emergency support to rebuild their house, see the photo above, Mr and Mrs Seleman Mghumba.

Conclusion
The implementation of this program was very successful, because it has answered the challenges the hunger people are facing in our communities. However, LFO and government should replan how to support rural people and especially old and disabled people. Despite the support we gave, still our people need more support, because their maize plants are at early stage and it will take some months, before they can harvest their crop. If stakeholders will not take an action to support them, it is obvious that deaths are unavoidable.

The Services – Clean Water, Drip Irrigation to Food Markets and Sustainable Electrification – can leverage villagers with capabilities to reduce hunger, malnutrition and diseases, even to avoid deaths. You can see more about these services in Services
