Since being displaced by armed groups in 2002, the people of Las Pavas have struggled to grow the food they need. Forced to flee their homelands and eke out a living on uncultivable land, people are going hungry and children are becoming malnourished. This gift could help pay for everything families need to establish a kitchen garden full of nutritious fruit and vegetables.
The community has been given seeds, tools and training in new farming techniques to deal with the difficult terrain. Our partner has also hired a nutritionist to run workshops about malnutrition and healthy eating.
