Poor Farmers In Mbusia, Kenya – Sugarcane planted:
The aid to poor farmers in the form of 10 acres of leased land is progressing nicely. The sugarcane seedling is planted, the rains have been good and soon, insha’Allah, the community will harvest their toil and sell the pick to nearby sugar factories who are eager for the produce. A whole community served and uplifted – Alhamd’Allah.
