26 October, Month of Mission: Go Mango!

Another post from the Preda foundation in the Philippines. Father Shay Cullen shares this photo; it’s clear that there need be no conflict between looking after the environment and for the best interests of the human beings who live and work there, including those on the margins, not least these former prisoners. Laudato Si!

There are 3,958  Mango saplings ready for  sharing to the Aeta communities  for planting on  denuded hillsides in Zambales Philippines.

The rich elite cut the rain forest, deprived thousands of species their habitat and the Aeta people also.

They now are subsistent hill farmers and Mango is an important annual income bought by Preda fair trade for mango puree.

Here in the photo Preda boys rescued from jails help in the planting.
