At Hanga Abbey a lady volunteer from Austria, Frau Christa, has just began growing the plant and encouraging all the monks to use it for their health benefits. Frau Christa works with students at Hanga Religious Seminary to grow the plant. She hopes to grow the plant at a larger scale with the help of the monks. Indeed the benefits of the plants have already been witnessed by many monks and students at Hanga. Thanks to Frau Christa for introducing to us about Moringa Oleifera so called MORINGA in Kiswahili. You can learn more about the plant if you browse in the web/internet.
