Army Veterans Engage in Agriculture
By Comfort Johnson, Intern

MONROVIA, March 24 (LINA) -The National Bureau of Veteran Affairs (NBVA) has cultivated cabbage on five acres of land in Grand Bassa County, to
help sustain its membership.

The Director-General of the Bureau, Rtd. General Rudolf F. Kolako, said the initiative is intended to help improve the living conditions of veterans and their families and to encourage them to engage in farming.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Gen. Kolako spoke Friday when he led a team of staff members of the Veteran Bureau on an inspection tour of the farm situated in Cotton Tree, in Grand Bassa County.

He said proceeds from the farm will be used to expand the farm and engage in the cultivation of other crops.

Rtd. General Kolako praised the Ministry of Agriculture for its support to the agriculture initiative of the Veteran Bureau.

Meanwhile, Gen. Kolako has appealed to government and agriculture-related organizations in Liberia to help the bureau with farming implements and funding to expand the farm.

Also speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency, the Bureau's Farm Project Manager, Peter Bonner, stressed the need for financial and material support to develop and expand the farm.

Mr. Bonner said it would be difficult to upkeep the farm, in the absence of farming tools, chemicals and money to compensate farm workers.
