MRDF goes bananas at Methodist Conference!

The newly inducted president and vice-president of Conference cut a giant banana cake to mark the official launch of Methodist Relief and Development Fund's new harvest resource, Enriching Harvest, at Methodist Conference in Wolverhampton.

The banana theme reflects the work that MRDF is doing in India, which is the focus of this year’s harvest pack. With MRDF support, Dalit communities are transforming once barren land into fruitful fields. Gangi (pictured) used to look at his land in dismay – now he sees a small but profitable banana plantation. He says, "We are getting livelihoods from this land and food for our families. For this we are thankful to you."
