After visiting several families in the area, Manis turned the car around and headed to Celisa’s house. Driving up to the yard Manis said, “LOOK AT THAT!”
Over the years, Lemuel has worked hard to SHOW our community the value of improving their environment. Constructing reservoirs of water, fencing off land to keep animals out, and planting trees are all ways we are setting a visual example for the people here. Step by step, we’ve first encouraged families to clear their yards of thorns to make the land usable.
Celisa’s family have been working really hard and have cleared their yards, but what SHOCKED US was a fence going up! Celisa explained that he wanted to do what we have done with our land and get it fenced off so he can start planting trees. WOW!!!
Manis wanted to encourage him to keep going, as he’s run out of funds to finish. With donations that have come in, Manis was able to help Celisa finish his fence.
