Tearfund helped to set up a market garden initiative which enabled Azourfa, a mother from Niger, to grow cabbages. She says it helped her a lot but now this vegetable supply has run out. “If it wasn’t for the market gardening work, the situation would be worse and I would be suffering a lot more." #sahel #hunger Richard Hanson/Tearfund

Five months ago Azourfa’s husband left Kamrey, a village in southern Niger, to find work in Nigeria. Unable to carry firewood to sell, due to an injury, Azourfa now collects goat droppings for use as fertilizer by a local farmer who pays a fraction of what she needs to buy millet. #Niger #africa #food Richard Hanson/Tearfund
