Annual CropWalk

In parts of Cambodia and around the world, your steps in the CROP HUNGER WALK can turn into nutritious, green leafy vegetables. “I now have vegetables for eating and don’t have to buy them from the market or neighbors, so I can save a bit of money,” says Eam Ean, a widow who is supporting her four children and an elderly mother. Ean is one of the 90 families in Preah Vihear Province who received seeds for planting gardens through Church World Services.

Through Church World Services, the families also learned to prevent animals from eating their crops. And they are wedding and watering their gardens regularly. The result: More food for everyone!

Join St. Mark’s in walking for hunger this October 17th (Sunday). We will be gathering at St. Anastasia Roman Catholic Church, Glen Flora & Poplar St. Waukegan, at 12 noon. Our contact person is Derek Londo.
