Alefa Soloti carries a 50 kg bag of corn provided by the ACT Alliance in Dickson, a village in southern Malawi that has been hard hit by drought in recent years, leading to chronic food insecurity, especially during the "hunger season," when farmers are waiting for the harvest. In addition to providing emergency food, the ACT Alliance is working with farmers in this village to switch to alternative, drought-resistant crops, as well as installing an irrigation system and utilizing other improved techniques to increase agricultural yields.
