Lutheran World Relief has been providing technical support to the Arhuaco community in cocoa and coffee farming techniques. The Arhuaco have been systematically buying farms located on their ancestral homelands and repopulating them. LWR is supporting their initiative to transition to cocoa farming a crop that grows well in the hotter, wetter low lands, but is new to the Arhuaco community. Sara A.

Make no mistake about it – 2017 was an eventful year. Food crisis in South Sudan, flash floods in India and Nepal, devastating hurricanes in the Caribbean. Thanks to your generous support,  Lutheran World Relief has been able to respond to these emergencies while continuing to work to improve the lives of families living in poverty around the world.

But even though 2017 is nearing an end, our work isn’t. There are still homes to be rebuilt, families to be fed and livelihoods to be restored. And the next famine, flood or war could strike at any time, anywhere.
