Rice Mill for Daraina
December 12, 2005

[Diocese of Antsiranana - Indian Ocean] The parish of Daraina in the rain forest has received a rice mill donation from the Rev. David Cohen of CNECPI Australia.

During a visit as the guest preacher at an ordination service in Ambilobe on September 4, he saw the situation of the community and responded generously.

The mill will be a source of revenue for women in the rain forest parish. It will also provide them with facilities to help their families.

“We are hoping to receive more rice mills as we need to help the parishes have fund-raising projects which will also provide work,” said Bishop Roger Chung.

Rice is a major crop in Madagascar but very primitive methods of farming are still widely used.
