[vc_row type=”vc_default” margin_top=”0″ margin_bottom=”5″][vc_column][vc_column_text]Two month ago the government came and cut down many of our trees. Maybe 14 coconut trees; 4 mango trees; lemon, lime and orange trees; and 6 or 5 cashew trees. There was nothing we could do because the village leaders agreed that the government could do this so that electricity lines could be set up. We were given nothing by the government for the trees that were cut. But it will be good to have electricity.
