Healthy Animals, Healthy People

EHA’s community projects serve villagers’ many needs. At Jiwan Jyoti Christian Hospital, community staff have begun training farmers in better agricultural techniques and even conducting animal health camps. They have held 12 camps in 12 different villages, reaching 212 farmers and caring for 1,105 cows.

The staff taught the farmers about planting kitchen gardens and making compost pits. The distribution of different vegetable and herb seeds gave the gardeners a good start. As these farmers put this new training to work, their families and neighbors will have better food options and improved nutrition for their families, which will in turn give their bodies better health. This is just one more way that EHA provides holistic care for the myriad people around them.
