Food donation for the victims of the cyclone Batsirai in Marokarima, Mananjary

Aktualisiert: 18. März 2022

Date of the trip: March 11 to March 14, 2022.

Marokarima is a village within the Mananjary district, in the south east of Madagascar, one of the small villages that were destroyed by the cyclone Batsirai in February. AJPER with its partners donated rice and beans for 220 households in Marokarima to help them during this difficult time. The donation will be enough for one week. «Even, it is only a small drop on a hot plate, it is so important" M. Hans Grieb said! Yes, exactly, because the breadfruits trees, jackfruit, litchis, banana trees, rice field and other agriculture are destroyed by the wind and the flood. The chef Fokotany and the Ampanjaka (notable) in Marokarima said that it would take 5 years to recover from the disaster.

There are other small villages that are destroyed and need urgent help. However, we could only donate for Marokarima.

I hereby send my gratitude to the members of AJPER. Despite the conditions (dirt road), they showed their determination to help the community of Marokarima. We had to push and pull our cars during 8 hours for only 09 km of dirt road.

Here are some pictures of the adventure.
