In 2019 the Indian Ocean Dipole caused severe flooding in the Upper Nile State area where Mabaan County is located. The Iowa Mabaan Community asked the Iowa Conference UMC to help address flood relief efforts. Delayed by COVID-19 and the need to cancel a proposed trip in Dec. 2020, Limmo was able to schedule his trip in May 2021.Limmo was met by Mabaan friends who assisted him in the purchase of sorghum, tarps, and mosquito nets which were then transported throughout numerous villages to approximately 1,066 families. Transportation to remote villages was hampered by heavy rain as this is the rainy season. This delay was frustrating to the distribution teams as well.
