"As good as bread"
Project "St. Brother Albert Chmielowski" in the Diocese of Doumé / Cameroon
Working for a long time in Caritas in the Doumé Abong-Mbang diocese, I notice how many needs there are, as people experience poverty, hunger and sickness. How many people suffer because of the lack of money necessary for surgeries, for treatments, for the repair of their homes which, for example, have lost their roofs due to high winds, which often occur in our region. Seeing the great demand and necessity of "every penny", as well as the helplessness of the local population and the powerlessness of the world affected by the pandemic - I decided to use the local natural resources at the disposal of the local population. Having been in Cameroon for many years, I realized that the "treasure" of this area are the ARACHIDS – (peanuts). The harvest is generally once a year but, often enough we harvest up to several 100 kg bags. The problem is that people have no place to sell them and really do not know what to do with them. With this commodity they pay, for example, school fees.
