Lifegiving Water

Description

Lai, a Laotian mother of three children, is happy to see the water flowing into her rice field. It means both food and an income.

In 2013, Lai’s family was one of more than 2,000 in their area whose land—and rice crop—was lost to floods. They lost not only the harvest, but also seeds for the next planting season.

World Vision and the World Food Program supplied materials and expertise to build an irrigation system that will enable families to grow rice in the dry season. Community members worked hard to build the irrigation ditches and were paid in rice—enough to carry them through the lean season.

Now they are reaping the benefits of more reliable and plentiful crops.
