Do something: Something will happen
Looking pretty healthy on that taro and tea. People need more assistance of seeds/seedlings from the Agriculture Department to start vegetable/fruit gardens (hopefully someone will donate or arrange to go to these areas that people have no transport means) they can build fruit & vege stands on their front lawns as an easy home and income set up.
Cut the bottom off plastic bottles which seem to be everywhere on the roads to make a little seedling greenhouse, use the water supply from the local churches they donate all they have to, even start village gardens at the church and allocate out. There is always a way. If you do nothing, nothing will happen.
