Rocky soil and scant rainfall pose challenges, but by employing innovative water and soil conservation techniques, the farmers are improving the quality of the soil and increasing the productivity of the land. By growing more diverse crops and reaping bigger harvests, families are able to increase household nutrition and sell their surplus produce for income which they can invest in land, equipment and education for their children.Please note that the Power of Partnerships and Friends of Episcopal Relief & Development web features are now on an alternating schedule.

Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] Judaism, like all religious traditions, calls Rabbi Victor Urecki to welcome the stranger, the refugee. In the Torah, God tells the Jews no less than 36 times to “love the strangers in their midst,” reminding them they were once strangers in Egypt, he said.Still, it’s not Urecki’s Jewish faith that drives him to welcome and to assist refugees arriving in Charleston, West Virginia. “As a Jew, I feel I’m called to be there for refugees because the refugee story is very personal for Jews,” said Urecki, a West Virginia Interfaith Refugee Ministry adviser. “It’s my people’s story. The image of every refugee should be an image imprinted on every Jew’s heart.”Urecki spoke on a six-person panel during a June 20 interfaith conversation and prayer for World Refugee Day hosted by Episcopal Migration Ministries at the Episcopal Church Center in New York. An iftar, the meal eaten by Muslims after sunset during Ramadan, followed the panel conversation. (The holy month of Ramadan, observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting to commemorate the first revelation of the Qur’an to Muhammad, began May 26 and ends June 24.)EMM encouraged congregations across the country to host similar interfaith conversations, and the June 20 panel was recorded on video for future use, said moderator Allison Duvall, EMM’s manager for church relations and engagement.The refugee narrative is encoded in Jews’ spiritual DNA. They were forced to flee pogroms in Europe, withstood anti-Semitism and hatred across the globe and endured centuries of war and bloodshed. “We’ve been swept up as bystanders and brutalized as victims. We’ve been killed in our homelands … because of who we were, what we believed and what we practiced,” said Urecki, an immigrant whose grandparents and father were refugees.Refugees are forced to flee because of who they are, what they believe and their religious practices, as another panelist confirmed. Anastasia Orlova is an asylum seeker from Russia. She arrived in the United States last October with her wife. Russia’s intolerance of LGBT people meant the couple kept few close friends, and Orlova would tell acquaintances she had a husband. She didn’t realize how depressed she was until she left Russia.“When you are scared or ashamed of yourself, you live in inner isolation,” Orlova said. In the United States, Orlova and her wife can be married legally, practice their beliefs and speak up for themselves. “Here in the U.S. we finally feel protected.”Refugees on the panel acknowledged that though they feel secure and free to be themselves in the United States, the country’s polarized politics and overarching economic and security fears are worrisome. The Trump administration has sought to suspend and reduce the U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program; as a result, EMM was forced to reduce its resettlement work.“Maybe the stakes now are so high and the fear is so deep and the walls are so thick that the only way we can heal the soul of a nation is for a wider-than-ever circle of allies to gather around to stand with refugee and resettlement agencies,” said the Rev. Stephanie Spellers, canon to the presiding bishop for evangelism, reconciliation and creation. Spellers represented the Episcopal Church on the panel.In Charleston, for example, West Virginia Interfaith Refugee Ministry operates, “in the heart of Trump country,” said Urecki. But if anything gives him hope, it’s that the people, even those who fear for their security and the economy, are open to conversation. “If you can get your foot in the door and have a conversation, you can win,” he said.West Virginia Interfaith Refugee Ministry became an EMM affiliate in December.As the Episcopal Church’s refugee resettlement agency, EMM is one of nine agencies partnered with the U.S. State Department to welcome and resettle refugees; it operates 31 resettlement affiliates in 26 dioceses, providing direct assistance to recent arrivals. The Episcopal Church has worked to resettle refugees since the 1930s. The federal government formalized the U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program in 1980, partnering with religious and secular organizations to provide direct assistance to newly arrived refugees in communities nationwide. Six of the government’s resettlement partners are faith-based; the program has historically, for the most part, enjoyed bipartisan support. Over the last two years, however, Americans’ attitudes toward refugees have begun to shift from quiet acceptance to fear of the other.Recently, EMM held a conference to train refugee supporters as advocates. EMM also offers ways for congregations to engage in refugee resettlement in their communities. The agency encourages Episcopalians to join the Episcopal Public Policy Network and advocate for policies that protect the rights of refugees and asylum seekers.World Refugee Day is held annually on June 20; the day is set aside to commemorate the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of refugees. An unprecedented 65.6 million people have been forcibly displaced worldwide. Among them 22.5 million have received refugee status and less than 1 percent will be resettled. Over half of all refugees are younger than 18 years old. Many were born in refugee camps where the average stay is 20 years.-Lynette Wilson is managing editor of the Episcopal News Service.

So we are paying them to spend our tax money on resettiling refugees.

April 27, 2021 Find out more September 4, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Denial of visas and harassment of journalists sympathetic to Sichuan Quake victims See the interview given to HBO last May: Reporters Without Borders deplores the Chinese government’s refusal to issue visas to two US filmmakers, Jon Alpert and Matthew O’Neill, thereby preventing them from attending yesterday’s screening of their documentary about the May 2008 Sichuan earthquake, “China’s Unnatural Disaster: The Tears of Sichuan Province” at the Beijing Independent Film Festival. The film examines the collapse of many schools in the earthquake and the difficulties encountered by the families of the victims in addressing their complaints to the government.“Their kids had been buried when the school collapsed,” Alpert said in a recent interview, explaining a scene in the documentary (). “In their town, almost all the other buildings remained standing (…) And the parents began asking why the school collapsed. Was it a shoddy construction, was it corruption? And nobody gave them any answer. They started to get angry and started marching.”Reporters Without Borders said: “While screening the documentary at a Beijing festival is laudable, denying visas to its two American makers is absurd. It is linked to the growing difficulties for foreign journalists and Chinese human rights activists to work in the areas affected by the earthquake. The openness displayed at the time of the quake is now unfortunately over.”Officials at the Chinese consulate in New York offered Alpert and O’Neill no explanation for the refusal to give them visas late last week but it was almost certainly linked to their film about the aftermath of the earthquake that devastated the southwestern province of Sichuan on 12 May 2008 and their work with its victims.Alpert and O’Neill arrived in Fuxin, near the Sichuan capital of Chengdu, 10 days after the earthquake. O’Neill told Reporters Without Borders about the grief and anger of the parents of children who were killed when Fuxin School No. 2 collapsed. “By the end of the week, we feltthat the police were monitoring all the school sites and all the parents we were speaking with,” he said, adding: “We decided to send a copy of our footage out of the country.”They sent the footage to HBO, the network for which they made the documentary. The decision was fortuitous because on their return to Chengdu: “We were surprised to be surroundedby approximately 30 plainclothes police men and women (…) We spent the next 8 hours at the Chengdu police headquarters where we were interrogated.”O’Neill hailed the courage and determination of the Beijing Independent Film Festival’s organisers. “The parents had been hoping that our presence (at the festival) might force the authorities to take a public position on the causes of their children’s deaths.” Eighteen months later, acting as a spokesperson for the families of the victims has become very risky. Huang Qi, a Chinese cyber-dissident who criticised the organisation of relief aid on his website, has been jailed since June 2008 on a charge of “illegal possession of state secrets.” To see the latest communiqué about HuangBlogger Tan Zuoren has been held since 28 March on a charge of inciting state subversion () for trying to calculate the number of children killed in the quake, for which no official figure has ever been given. Police prevented two Hong Kong journalists, Wong Ka-yu and Wu Siu-wing from covering the opening of his trial in Chengdu on 12 August by not letting them leave their hotel. Chinese artist Ai Weiwei, who had wanted to testify in his favour, was also prevented from leaving his hotel.Many foreign journalists were manhandled and expelled from the worst-hit areas on the first anniversary of the earthquake.Other censorshipWith less than a month to go to celebrations planned for the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China on 1 October, censorship is increasing.The Propaganda Department has ordered the Chinese media to carry only the official news agency Xinhua’s version of the situation on the Burmese border, where around 30,000 Burmese civilians have reportedly fled the country following clashes between Burmese government forces and rebel groups. Foreign journalists have been prevented from entering refugee camps on the Chinese side of the border.The Communist Party’s censors also instructed the leading news media not to cover the recent protests and rioting about serious cases of pollution in the southern provinces of Fujian and Yunnan.

Ontario Police Department(ONTARIO, Calif.) — A California mom has been arrested for allegedly killing her 4-month-old daughter and 14-year-old daughter, authorities said Thursday.Linda Nguyen, 47, was arrested for the deaths of her two children, who were found Tuesday in their garage in Ontario, about 40 miles east of Los Angeles, according to Ontario police.The gruesome discovery was made on Tuesday by the children’s father when he arrived home, prompting him to call police, Sgt. Bill Russell said at a news conference on Wednesday.Nguyen, who was found unresponsive at the home on Tuesday, allegedly left suicide notes — one in the house and one in the car — saying she intended to kill the children and herself, Russell said.“Nguyen remains at a local hospital but will be booked at West Valley Detention Center on two counts of murder once she has been medically cleared,” police said on Thursday.Russell called the case a “horrible tragedy.”He said “the mother was dealing with depression” but he did not elaborate or say if she was being treated.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
