Supporting Smallholder Farmers during Covid 19
During these difficult times we have to ensure that farming and food production is not disrupted. The farmers needs our support as they are not able to move around, buy food and healthcare items or have to pay a high price. We need to do everything to continue to help the farmers to ensure that food security at this critical time is retained. We at iFarmer are doing just that. During these trying times of uncertainty, we continue to work alongside our partner farmers. So far we have identified and supported 300 farmers. We are also sharing leaflets among our farmers to raise awareness on covid-19 and how to stay safe.
iFarmer distributed a package of basic food items and essentials among 300 farmers from 10th Apr 2020 till the 12th of Apr 2020. We covered 11 different areas under Kurigram and Lalmonirhat, places to be covered: Borobasuriya, Budaru, Bogarchira, Shorishabari, Bhitorbon, Nun Khawa, Vogdah, KurigramSadar, Kadhal Bari, Mogholpasha, Patkhapacchor.
