Mennonites return aid to ancestral home

0 comment

With support from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), Mennonite Economic Development Associates’ new project in Ukraine aims to help smallholder farmers in areas once populated by Mennonites who fled to Canada after the Bolshevik Revolution. The five-year, $10-million project will help 5,000 smallholder farmers in the Zaporozhye and Crimea regions improve production of table grapes, potatoes, berries, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and medicinal herbs.
