In Coyolar Tilapas,. Olancho, Raúl Alemán is part of a community group that has got together to grow food to survive the effects of climate change that has brought both very heavy rains and prolonged periods of drought and heat. "to try to sustain ourselves" says Raúl "we decided to work together to produce food. First we began with vegetable gardens, but that's not enough, so now, with the support of Diaconia and World Renew, we are doing some bigger projects. we've grown tomatos, peppers and onions. right now we're planted 200,000 onions, some of them we'll eat, but most of them are to sell. Without irrigation here, we'd be losing the crop every time, and the help of Diaconia, with the tubes and pumps and advice, has been fundamental to us".
