Last week Joseph Aba, Golda Poni and Yango visited Kiri to talk with the community and church leaders about the CRESS agriculture program. It was very fruitful. the church and the community were more than willing not only to support the program but love the program; and shared health ideas to make the program more effective. The CRESS team in South Sudan are very much encourage.
Improving agricultural productivity is the charities top priority as it positively impacts on both health and the local economy. Currently South Sudan barely manages a subsistence level of production, which when combined with poor food storage provision means that many people face starvation in the dry season. The lack of rain presently being experienced is further adding to the problem of food availability and price.
