In northern Nicaragua, farming has been severely affected by lack of rainfall over recent years. The prolonged drought has dried up rivers and wells and has destroyed most crops before they get to harvest. ELCA is supporting the Nicaraguan Lutheran Church, ILFE, with community-based farming responses to this crisis, where small plots are farmed in groups, sometimes with irrigation, in an attempt to provide the basic nutritional requirements for the participating families. Here villagers near Somotillo work on a community plot supported by ELCA.
