The year's second crop of corn has been harvested and is in the process of being dried and stored. After the corn dries it will be shelled and placed in 90kg bags for distribution to AYA partner orphanages and schools in Kenya. Pastor Fred Afwai is in charge of the farm and reports the yield for this season will be much better due to improved rains. We do not yet have an exact total until the corn is shelled and bagged.
The appreciation and positive feedback from AYA partners is encouraging. Pastor Patrick Kimawchi of Gospel Believers Children's Home reports that the corn distributed so far has been a huge help amid major financial constraints for the home. Gospel Believers has an increase in children and have been struggling to pay school fees and basic living expenses for the children. The donated corn greatly helps to supplement their budget and see that the children's needs are met.
We will be sure to keep you updated on more inspiring stories after the next harvest is distributed. Thank you so much for making the farm possible!
