Today we spoke with Dr. Sam Chilopora. Good news and bad news. First, the good news is that from in our Balaka Goat Program we have 16 baby goats born since our visit in September 2010! They are
doing well and we are very happy about this since so many of them died before this. The orphan children depend on these goats for milk. You can see some of what we have written about our Malawi goat program at http://lifenets.org/malawi/goats09balaka/goats09balaka1.htm
The bad news is that it’s coming to the end of the rainy season and there was not much rain this season. Not enough to germinate the maize. Crop prospect does not look good.
Bev and I will be in Malawi in a few weeks and will see our good friends….
