Normally, our region of Tanzania has a short rainy season during November/December. This year, most of the region didn’t have a short rainy season. Here in Monduli Juu, we had one or two rains, about 1/2 inch each. One day, we got an inch and a half, but that is all.
Crops are dying. Some farmers have allowed their cows into their bean fields, because the crop is dying and there is no other food available. If the drought continues, cows will start dying, then sheep and goats.
These are subsistence farmers, with no other way to make a living. This could become a matter of life and death for some people.
We are considering ways to help, and we are praying for wisdom. Please pray for rain!
