Even amid the COVID-19 pandemic, our ECHO Asia staff is putting seeds into the hands of those who need them most. The seed bank staff has initiated a program called “Seeds of Hope” to make seed, seedlings, and soil available to people in need of food during this of crisis. Distribution has begun to many partners in the Northern Thailand region. Hundreds of seed packets have been distributed to partners on the Burma/Thailand border to help Burmese migrant workers who are stranded because of border closings.
