Maize Farm Project
The Dagomba tribe of the Northern Region of Ghana, are farmers. They plant their crops at the beginning of the rainy season, which just began last week. They harvest their crops and feed their families. If there's any extra, they sell it so they can have enough money to send their children to school or to go to the doctor when sick.
But for the widows, there are no crops to sow. Their children often go hungry. Some die from starvation or sickness due to malnutrition.
IHH is pleased to be partnering with Shalom Baptist Church and Pastor Ziblim Mohammed in planting maize on a 7 acre plot of land near the mud-hut village of Tamale. The harvest of maize will help feed widows and orphans in three villages.
We are thankful that God has provided the funds for the planting and harvesting of the crops.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27
