Church World Service Blanket and Tools Offering - Sunday, May 10 Reaching out to flood survivors
When heavy rains brought deadly flooding to Colorado in fall 2013, thousands of families were evacuated, their homes damaged or destroyed, their roads and bridges torn up. CWS sent blankets and other emergency supplies to several Colorado communities, to help survivors deal with the disaster and begin the task of recovery.
A garden for every family
“The fish in the river used to give us life,” says Emeterio. “When we fished, we could send our children to school, we had enough to eat. All that has changed now. We were completely lost, but this project has helped us find a new path.” With support from CWS, Emeterio and others are developing kitchen gardens to help feed their families.
The CWS agricultural project also benefits two other communities in the region and involves approximately 25 families and 200 people. “I had no idea how to prepare the soil and seedbeds or develop organic pesticide,” says Emeterio, who now grows lettuces, spring onions, swiss chard, carrots, zucchini and radishes. “We want to ensure that every Weenhayek family has its own garden.”
