This is a pilot project to restore farms to increase good production in the Kananga area. Farmer stopped farming for three seasons for to violence in the area. The displacement of farmers and people created an humanitarian crisis in the Kasai. 500,000 children are at risk to stunting, malnutrition, and starvation. #Congo #Kasai #crisis
In an earlier video (https://youtu.be/fOUrEYbQbXU), I talked about Congo being a cash only country. So what can happen if you have no way to prove payment for services or goods? Yep, you can be take advantage of. I think that's why I don't my passport and visa to date. #Congo #cash #problems
I have never had malaria in Congo which is a malaria endemic country. Thousands of children for annually and millions of adults are sick from malaria. I grateful for the preventative measures I use. One, I sleep under an insecticide treated bed net. Two, I take an anti-malaria medicine (Doxycycline) daily. And three, I used mosquito repent at night while sitting around. As I prepare for shooting this video, Bowayi, a Congolese friend stopped by and brought me some raw peanuts and fresh corn. I'm grateful!
Update from the Kananga. I recap the highs and LOWS of the week. The pastor at church asked where I had been the last 2-3 Sundays. Tuesday, I paid Immigration $100 for another letter to explain they had my passport. Wednesday, another thief from the house. Thursday and Friday, I was on stakeout at the house when on the thief to return. Saturday, we went to a local restaurant for river fish of the day.
