Haitian men planting sapling fruit trees

A Tree Grows in Haiti

HAITI – After Hurricane Sandy destroyed an estimated 70 percent of the crops in southern Haiti, Operation Blessing teams distributed sapling fruit trees to aid in the long-term restoration of agriculture in the region.

Ensuring the trees reached farmers in the most need, OBI teams designated 150 breadfruit saplings for those who were still unreachable due to severe flooding following Sandy.

An additional 100 guava tree saplings were distributed in Port Salut; 60 were placed in a nursery to be distributed to local farmers and another 40 were given to students in a civic education class to help instruct students on the value of these trees as well as their proper care.
