News from Bemvu

News from Dikirani at our sister parish in Bemvu, Malawi is that the community has been "at the edge of surviving" as they have been facing serious food shortages following the failure of the harvest last year. The good news, however, is that the growing season has gone much better this year, with steady rainfall watering the crops. By now the maize crop is maturing nicely where fertiliser has been applied and people are looking forward to a good harvest from April onwards.
