RAWA activists in drought-stricken villages of Herat

RAWA in drought-stricken villages of Herat

Country folk discussing the drought and their manifold problems with a RAWA member. They explain how last year, despite unfavourable conditions, they were able to harvest 15 tonnes of grain from a piece of land that only yielded 0.6 tonnes this year. They also speak of a cholera epidemic which killed many people in their village and of the death of their livestock through drought. Medical and food aid is an urgent necessity but it is uncertain whether any help can reach these people.
