The community is making progress in the rehabilitation programme they initiated in this quarter. The first phase of planting has been accomplished by each individual beneficiary by the end of May. Our Champion, who prepared to grow lemon trees under this programme, was the last to complete phase one due to his trip to another town in Rakhine State. But finally, he finished it early this month of June. The villagers are normally very busy with their farm work in the rainy season. But they are excited about the new plants they grow in their gardens. Our Champion said, “ The families are doing well with their plantations. I am the last one to finish the first phase. We are all excited and motivated about this programme. I believe we will achieve the goal.”
