The Crisis We Face
Christine Enock is a farmer in Malawi and a SCIAF project participant, who's witnessed the devastating impact of drought on her whole community.
“The drought brought many difficulties for women, as they are the ones responsible for the children and households.
“Because of the drought, we lost our crops. We had to leave the children hungry and crying so we could look for food and try and get some work wherever we could.
“It also affected our family life. Our husbands had to move away to look for food and a job which meant women were left at home to look after the family. The men came back with little or nothing. Migration was an issue.”
