Onion producers get relief funding

Papaya farmers are facing economic hard times, but today onion producers got a little relief. The government handed over chemicals and irrigation supplies to thirteen families in the northern village of Santa Martha to plant and harvest three acres of onion. The donation, worth twenty five thousand dollars, is part of an initiative which seeks to promote the production of onions for local consumption. The project is being carried out by the Social Investment Fund under the Hurricane Dean Emergency Reconstruction Project and is funded by the European Union.
