Planting trees together after the flash flood
In 2021, Lembata island (Indonesia) was hit by a flash flood, which caused many people to lose their homes.
Recently, the Taman Daun community joined hands and started to build new houses for the victims who lost their homes.
At the same time, the elder women of the community started to plant trees around the new houses.
John Batafor, the Taman Daun community leader, tells us that fifty mango and mahogany trees were planted in the area!
These trees create a green space, protect the houses from extreme heat and rain, while also producing fruit.
Thank you for inspiring us again, John!
We hope your community is recovering well from the flooding.
