I am talking about this plant which is called “Sougban” in our language because it is in danger of extinction due to climate change. Yet it is a very effective plant in the treatment of malaria. It treats stomach aches and certain skin infections, it facilitates childbirth for pregnant women and above all its leaves are delicious in sauce. That’s why I want to domesticate it and water it to prevent it from extinction. It is a very important plant for our community.
