The joy of nutritious food: Bhagiraj’s story
The distress of not having enough food for our children is the terrible reality for millions of people – including Bhagiraj from Nepal.
A hardworking husband, father and grandfather, Bhagiraj provided for his family by growing fruit and vegetables on his land – but the yield only provided food for six months of the year.
Through a Caritas program, Bhagiraj was able to improve his knowledge of farming techniques and diversify his crops. Bhagiraj is now a member of a flourishing farming cooperative and able to save money for his children’s future – and his family no longer goes hungry.
For Bhagiraj, the joy and pride of putting a plate of home-grown, healthy vegetables on his family’s dinner table all year round was an incredible gift.
