The tsunami had wiped out crops and left the ground so salty nothing would grow. Through a 5-step process, beginning with drilling fresh water wells, and then flushing and neutralizing the soil a couple times, this soil can now accommodate crops again.
And instead of just ONE crop a year, the wells and irrigation system result in 3 crops per year for the farmers!–Quite a financial bonus to these dear folks.
Day 3 – Visited a school that Family Care renovated, and added 8 new classrooms to, as well the addition of bathrooms and shower facilities etc. (Prior to this, the school had no bathroom facilities whatsoever, other than the nearby bushes!) 1200 children from local fishing villages presently attend this school.
