South Sudan Refugee Garden

South Sudan Refugee Garden


Refugees from South Sudan have been fleeing into Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, and Sudan. In Ethiopia, the Jewi refugee camp is one of the biggest camps and hosts more than 45,000 refugees. An assessment team from the Covenant Church of South Sudan has learned that the camp has many elderly and malnourished children who are suffering from the lack of sufficient diet and are at great risk. This assessment team has also found a plot of land that is 800 square meters that has good soil for a vegetable garden.
The program is led by refugees who have experience with agriculture and raising vegetables. This leadership team will make sure that the produce grown in the garden is distributed to the most vulnerable and that it will support orphans, widows, the elderly and disabled.
