After two decades of civil war, Liberians are facing a crisis: Farmland has been devastated. Dependent on aid, families do not know how to grow their own food.
THE CHURCH IN ACTION….
Food shortages are an everyday reality in Liberia. How do we change that?
By helping people produce their own food. Become a Tearfund partner with a gift of $29/month. You will be there for the people, helping them to grow their own food.
Your gift of $45 provides a bag of seeds.
We start with the church, training people to go to their own neighbours and teaching them how to plant, care for, and harvest their own market gardens.
We focus on personal transformation—new hope in the people who follow Jesus to live as Jesus lived.
AND… We do not take shortcuts.
We can hand out food — that’s easy. But teaching the people how to grow food in land that has been worn and in changing weather conditions is a lot tougher.
