Description

As winter approaches in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province and the Federally Administrated Tribal Areas, farmers are in a race against time to plough fields and sow seed. The mighty Swat River swept away entire swathes of agricultural land. Those farmers lucky enough to have only lost their crops and who still have a plot of land to work, fear that the soil has been irreparably damaged. The ICRC and the Pakistan Red Cross Society supports 30,000 families all over the region, providing seed, fertilizer and agricultural implements.
