Sierra LeoneChildren’s Hope Fund Hong Kong has provided support for the establishment of Oil Palm Nurseries in the Kailahun District in Sierra Leone, providing long term income for the farmers and their families.
Unlike in some Asian and South American countries, Sierra Leone Palm oil is grown on already cultivated arable land. The cultivation does not take place on specially cleared rainforest.
sustainable Palm oil!
From an environmental perspective, palm oil is not a bad oil per se. This is because no oil plant in the world is more effective: four to six tons of palm oil produces one hectare of palm oil plantation. Rapeseed plants need about two and a half times the area, soy even six times. Our support will comprise 12 communities.
