ZVISHAVANE - In a bid to mitigate the effects of the El Nino-induced drought in Mberengwa, World Vision Zimbabwe is embarking on various projects that will lead to improved food security in the districts.
World Vision is set to donate small grains that can survive with below average rainfall and very hot weather conditions as those found in Mberengwa.
The global aid and development organisation is also implementing a programme for she goat-rearing as well as improving the areas' irrigation capacity.
World Vision Area Development Programmes Manager, Gilbert Mushanguri confirmed plans to donate small grain seed to various parts of Mberengwa.
"We are planning to give out four tons of sorghum and two tons of cowpeas to farmers under Chief Negove and Chief Ngungumbane in Mberengwa East and those under Chief Nyamondo in Mberengwa South," said Mushanguri.
He said chiefs in those areas are also going to have their seeds for the zunde ramambo scheme.
World Vision has of late extended Tashinga Cooperative Garden in Negove and Vurasha Irrigation Scheme.
It has also donated 200 she goats to villagers in Ngungumbane to help villagers cope with the drought that is ravaging the country.news
