Maize farming project to be continued
Ruedi Lüthy Foundation In June 2015, the Ruedi Lüthy Foundation set up a project for food-insecure patients aimed at enabling them to feed themselves and their families with efficient maize farming.
135 patients have since completed the course. Despite the severe drought, the results have been encouraging and the project is therefore to be extended for a further year.
The families that have successfully participated in the project have been able to harvest an average of 300kg of maize – enough to feed a family of five for three to four months. (Photo: Ruedi Lüthy Foundation)
