Eight Community Gardens to Feed the Hungry with Near East Foundation Assistance

With your support, the Near East Foundation is at work in Mali purchasing seeds and basic agricultural supplies for eight community gardens in the villages of Korientzé, M'Bessena, N'Gorodia, Dari, Deri, Kikara, and Mounouwel Gafity.

These villages are located in the Mopti Region - one of many areas that have little or no food security due to Mali’s political instability and last year’s poor harvest.

It is now the planting season for vegetables. The seeds and supplies being provided by our team – thanks to donations like yours – will produce badly needed crops of shallots, potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, beets, cabbage, and lettuce to feed a multitude of families in the coming months.

Your gift is supporting our ongoing relief work during this time of crisis in Mali. Thank you!
