Ebola recovery in Liberia

Nov 2015

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in Liberia, the Ministry of Agriculture and the local implementing partner – Green Revolution Promoters (Green Pro), generated much happiness when they joined Ebola-affected farmers to launch the first harvest of improved rice varities in late October in Tundin, Nimba County.

During the ceremony, Ms. Doris Zumba, Chairlady of the Dordealah Farmers Group in Tundin explained how this project is helping them get back in action. “Ebola killed people and destroyed a lot. But FAO and the Ministry came to us and today we are going to harvest and will soon receive our village saving loan FAO promised us.”
