Down on the Farm
The Covid-19 pandemic along with the looming drought in Kenya has left many people very vulnerable in the Turkana region. Children of the Kingdom students studying agriculture in colleges came together this spring and brainstormed ways they could apply their skills to make a difference in this crisis. Along with Veronica Lemuya’s help, they asked the government to give them a piece of land to plant some crops which then would be sold at low prices and shared with those in need. This property is located by the river, and they are using a solar-powered drip irrigation system. See below to see some of the fruits of their labor and the way they are giving back to the community. Seeing watermelons growing in the desert is guaranteed to bring you some hope for the days ahead.
