COVID 19 has greatly impact the lives of people. Supply of yams and other staple food crops have reduced which will affect the livelihood of people through shortage of food supply and starvation.
We have organised the Food Security Program to encourage and promote subsistence farming on Kiriwina. The garden crop maintains the livelihood of the people. To maintain the culture so that people value the yams and feel proud.
We have made two gardens on Kiriwina as the host of the Food Security Program. The program will run for a year to begin with and will celebrate the program after the yam harvest in July/Aug next year.
Thanks to our sponsors and donors and our in-country manager we have sent 27 cartons of yam seeds to Kiriwina for planting due to low supply of yam seeds on Kiriwina.
