Just exactly WHAT is DOING?
Currently, the primary activities of CBM are being carried out through an agency
agreement with the Savannah Farmers Cooperative (SFC) in South Sudan.
SFC is a farming operation centered in Bori, South Sudan. SFC has a proven record of
assisting the local community in moving towards self‐sufficiency in the production of
food for the immediate region and for all of South Sudan.
Through this initiative, capable and committed local Sudanese are being equipped,
employed, and trained in modern farming techniques that are directly contributing to
the development of Agricultural and Economic progress in the region.
The Board of Directors of Savannah Farmers
Cooperative are almost entirely South Sudanese
nationals, the only exception being Cal Bombay,
the founder and president of Cal Bombay
Ministries, the exclusive sponsor of SFC.
At this point, the entirety of the direct
management and day‐to‐day operations of
Savannah Farmers Cooperative are in the very
capable hands of trustworthy Christians who are
from that region.
The Staff and Labourers at SFC are also local
people, many of them living within just a short
distance of Bori or in the small village that has
sprung up next to the SFC compound there.
This is a good thing! Since the long‐term goal of
CBM is to help create a successfully self‐
governing, self‐sustaining and self‐propagating
program, the wholehearted and committed
workers are absolutely essential to the future.
They are GOOD PEOPLE, and God is blessing them
as they are blessing others!

I dislikedthenextcampevenmore. Weflew in by helicopter.From
the air we could see a mass of people around a strange compound,
walled with thorn trees and thorny branches.
After landing in a cleared place, I was conducted through a throng of
listless and very quiet people of all ages.
As we were about to enter through the makeshift gate, I saw a long
line of people who must have heard that food was available. An
Ethiopian in a medic”s white knee‐length coat was pointing people in
two different directions.
