with the Bishop of St Albans’ Harvest Appeal 2020

Our Bishop’s Annual Harvest Appeal this year will help many people in Nepal. In 2015, Nepal suffered immense loss and devastation in two major earthquakes; thousands of lives were impacted- 9,000 people died, communities made homeless, infrastructures collapsed and livelihoods completely lost.

In more recent years, however, the Nepalese people are growing to appreciate the value of beekeeping. Bees help to maintain the fragile biodiversity, as pollinators, to enhance crop production and a good income can be generated from sales of honey. It has been estimated that the country of Nepal can sustain 125,000 beehives; presently, there are around 26,000, showing there is significant opportunity.

Pastor Manish and familyIn the Harvest Appeal resources, you can read Pastor Manish’s story, whose life has now been transformed – his faith in God, determination and entrepreneurial attitude have resulted in him now having a successful beekeeping business -and his desire is that many other families can experience the same.
