Fruitful gardens for refugees

Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh, Christian Aid Minstries

Chesa* lived in a bamboo and tarp hut along a barren hillside. She arrived at the Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh in 2018 with few belongings and no place to call home. Her dismal surroundings offered little hope for a brighter future.

In 2020, Chesa joined the SALT Agri-Plus group that began holding meetings in her area. The hands-on agricultural lessons at the meetings taught her how to make and apply compost to her garden plants. Chesa also learned techniques such as erosion control to help increase her garden yields.

The Biblical teachings given at the SALT meetings spoke to Chesa’s soul. We pray that SALT Agri-Plus will inspire Chesa and other refugees to bear abundant spiritual fruit. God bless you, supporters, for making it possible to reach out to refugees in Bangladesh.
