Eastern Highlanders suffering from El Nino: growers leader

Solepa Thomas Arganisafa, the secretary of the Eastern Highlands Agricultural Society, said food gardens are wilting under the scorching sun and the water sources drying up.

“Livelihoods of the many villagers in the Asaro Valley and other parts of the Eastern Highlands are at stake.”

Arganifa challenged the provincial and national disaster committees to assess the situation and  help the simple villagers.
