The land has been denuded and virtually stripped of its natural vegetation, leaving it very vulnerable to climate change.
There are over 500 settlers who live here. They are solely reliant on rain for irrigation.
The land is separated from the nearest township by a river that has been waiting for a government request for a bridge.
Children have to walk across this river by foot daily onto bumpy, rough and unpaved roads to attend the nearest elementary school.
There is no farm-to-market road to assist the farmers with their produce. Even in their most productive months, they have extreme difficulty taking their harvest into town due to lack of infrastructure.
