|Donors to the International Water and Health Alliances (IWHA) provided $10k in January, 2019, to enable the Friends of the Old (FOTO) project in Lower Nyakach, Kenya, to purchase 2,600 2 kg packages of certified sorghum seed. FOTO consulted with chiefs, assistant chiefs and village elders to select the 200 most needy households in each location and to distribute the seeds to these households. The people have been very happy and are preparing to plant the seeds. The rains have not come yet but most farms are already prepared and waiting for rain. Thanks to generous IWHA donors, the number of households receiving certified seeds in each of the 13 locations has increased from 150 in 2017, 180 in 2018, to 200 in 2019. IWHA’s main project with FOTO is to eliminate waterborne disease despite highly contaminated drinking water sources. See: www.imageevent.com/bobmetcalf/thegoaliszero|
