Earlier this year, Caoimhe met with communities in Nsanje District, Southern Malawi. She talked with farmers Mary Nsona and Agatha Blam from Jimu village who worked intensively with Concern advisors to prepare their land for the harvest: “They prepared their land together through long hours of hard labour: they mulched, dug basins to reduce moisture loss, dug canals for irrigation,” tells Caoimhe, “They were prepared for a good harvest even with low rainfall levels, however when the rains failed completely, they harvested nothing.”
