Rainy Season in Luhombero

Flooding results in less food

“Heavy rains destroy the environment terribly,” says Father Placid. “Cultivation becomes more difficult or impossible. Our crops at Luhombero have been flushed away as water passes over them. These photos show people passing across some difficult places along the road. A better road would help. But year-round agriculture would be an even better solution. Certainly there will be hunger this year.”
