Dear MEL Topic Readers,

‘Super beans’ raise hopes in hunger-prone parts of Africa

Use, save or invest? The choice may be depending on how desperate the needs are, and how scarcely the resources are. In the case of hunger, eat what is on the table now, or plant it and grow more food for the future. 

When you’re really hungry or starving, it’s really difficult not to fill your stomach even though you know you’ll be even hungrier later. This is often the case in some places in Africa where the top priority is just getting any food to survive. Also, such places tend to have infertile soil and very little precipitation, which makes farming very challenging. They need crops or plants to grow that are high yield, resistant to dry conditions, and tolerant of diseases and pests.

So-called super beans, seem to meet such requirements, and they are grown more in different places in the continent. 

They have a good balance of protein, carbohydrate, and fat, but not genetically modified. The pinkish color seems to be liked, too. Sounds ideal, doesn’t it?

It’s also important for refugees and immigrants to be self-sufficient instead of relying on the food that is provided by aid organizations to create their future.

Enjoy reading and think which sounds more practical in Africa, growing beans or chickens.
