January 2011 update: Life goes on
In 2010, there were chronic shortages of food and water across many parts of Africa. Lives were at risk. The situation in rural Tanzania looked desperate.
But thanks to Life supporters like you, emergency food supplies got through. In the villages of Ngorongoro, you helped turn this crisis around.
We thank and bless Oxfam and all those supporting us in these communities. Such unpredictable droughts will kill people in these places. But your support surely reaches us.
Right now we are helping the communities rebuild following this crisis. And we're continuing our focus on schools, water and livelihoods, to help these families find lasting solutions to poverty.
Emergency response facts:
8 villages supported - Arash, Engaresero, Maaloni, Malambo, Ololosokwan, Pinyinyi, Piyaya, Soitambo
547 tonnes of maize and beans distributed
