Starve today or starve tomorrow?
Its not an easy one, not one any of us would have to choose, but it is this she has to face.
No rainfall in February has meant that this season’s crops have failed – and now food has run out.
As food runs out, Abinet is faced with this stark choice.
Should she feed her family today on the seed saved for future planting, or plant that seed and hope… somehow, that they are able to survive till harvest in November? What would you do? With this as your only choice!
You have never had to make that choice, but climate change, caused by events a world away and out of Abinet’s control, has meant that the once reliable February rains did not come, starvation soon follows.
