When I last stayed in Eburru, in September of 2022, everywhere I looked, the fields were brown and barren. 2 years of hardly any rain had resulted in crop failures again and again. People were hungry; animals perished. Now, April 2023, I see green fields and vegetables sprouting through the soil. Every night I have been here this time has seen torrential rainfall. This has been good for planting, but it has also created flooding and many homes have been overcome with water and mud. For several decades, the increase in deforestation throughout many parts of the world has created severe adverse effects on our ecosystems. In Kenya, the government has started giving out tree saplings to schools, asking students and the community to participate in their replanting project. Having seen the importance reforestation is to our environment, CBM has been doing their own tree planting project for some time now. The team from Chic-Fil-A that visited CBM this past month was able to participate in a small, but important way, by planting trees in front of the administration building. At the same time, the ground was being prepared for a row of trees to be planted in the hillside above the high school. It is easy to sit back and say that what one or two people can do does not matter much. Time and time again we see that what we do, each and every one of us, truly matters.
