ICC Provides Farming Assistance in Nigeria
03/09/2019 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – Over the past two years, a village in central Nigeria has been struck by several Fulani militant attacks. As a result, 75 men in the village were killed. In the wake of these attacks, their families have been devastated as they have lost their breadwinners on top of the overwhelming weight of grief. Additionally, many of the families’ farms were destroyed as the militants swept through the village.
In order to help these grieving families recover, ICC provided them with 35 hectares of land to care for. In addition, we provided cassava stems, fertilizer, pesticides, packaging supplies, and other materials necessary for them to support their agricultural business. These supplies will be enough to allow the families to farm for two growing seasons as they restore their livelihoods. The farms serve a dual purpose in that they sustain the families by meeting their physical needs, but also provide a form of income for them to sustainably support themselves for years to come.
