Papaya Leaf Tea; Health for the Poor

The ECHO Organization asks for help from researchers to aid the poor in our international communities. What foods should be planted? What inexpensive health solutions do we have?

One of these is papaya leaf tea, and this has inspired the Julia Ruffin Project to set up micro farmers to grow the tea.

Papaya leaf tea qualifies because the fruit is abundant and grows like a weed in many tropical parts of the world where indigent people live.

The tree is actually an herb, and the young leaf can be brewed as a tea for significant health benefits, even including its (lab) researched ability to fight Dengue Fever, malaria, HIV, and cancer.

We do need young researchers to continue this exciting research and volunteers to microfarm all over the world.
