Thirty two community members come together in a village near Mohale's Hoek to combat erosion due to climate change. WFP's Food for Work programme has enabled this village to build structures which protect their farm land from heavy rain fall, while also providing food to feed their families during hard times.
Mathato is a traditional healer, mother and grandmother of three young children. In the past, she has been able to collect wild plants to help her family during the lean season but, after two failed harvests, this was no longer enough. Mathato led a dance to thank WFP for the work being done in her community to help the many families affected by food insecurity.
Heavy rains have washed away many fields in the area of Mohale’s Hoek. With no field to grow crops, Mabuoang Matsipa was worried about what the future would hold for her daughter and two grandchildren who live with her. Now, her daughter is working on rebuilding their fields as part of a Food for Work team.
