Ruth Emmanuel-Makandiwa believes in offering sustainable support to beneficiaries. As much as beneficiaries are supported through Food Aid, there is need to empower them so they can also be productive. Most rural based beneficiaries are still able bodied and willing to work as they have the land resources to farm on though they are in need of assistance when it comes to farming inputs which is why most had neglected tilling their land during the past farming seasons.
The targeted rural locations were Seke Rural, Murape, Materera, Mhondoro, Beatrice and Churu Farm whereas the distributed Farming Inputs included Ammonium Nitrate Fertilizer and Maize Seed as well as Cash for Tractor Hire and Fuels. All beneficiaries were also treated to a grocery hamper with either Mealie Meal or Maize Grain depending on their household demographics.
The Hampers included, Cooking Oil, Juice, Sugar, Flour, Rice, Tea Bags, Bath Soap, Petroleum Jelly and Laundry Bar Soap. Beneficiaries were indeed grateful for the continuous support that they get from Agape Family Care on a monthly/ quarterly basis however they also sincerely appreciated being equipped with a more sustainable and empowering formulae of planting their own food.
