COPING THROUGH DROUGHT I How Families Remain Resilient During the El Nino Induced Drought
Ha Lepatoa Community continue to suffer the effects of the 2015 El Nino induced drought. A seven (7) member
was established in 2017 to respond to the acute food shortages affecting families in Ha Lepatoa - Makhunoane. This is one of the ten (10) groups supported by the Australian Aid funded Southern Africa Livelihoods Project operating in Lesotho, South Africa and Eswatini.
In Lesotho, we aspire to a country where children are protected, educated, well-nourished and healthy. We are called to partner with children, their communities, the church and strategic stakeholders to address root causes of poverty.
We are committed to long-term change, which means connecting people. Whether it’s enabling people in developing communities to support each other, linking donors to those in need through child sponsorship or creating networks to campaign for justice, we believe that getting people connected is the best way to make a lasting difference.
