For the past few weeks we’ve brought you the stories of real people in Mozambique, who we’ve been working with to help stop hunger in their communities. But if a picture is worth a thousand words, we’re hoping this brief video will speak volumes. Here’s a glimpse into the fields, homes and daily lives of the people you’re helping when you support our work.
Justino Simon is a project coordinator with one of our partner organisations, the Christian Council of Mozambique Inhambane. We travelled to Mozambique to learn more about how Justino is helping communities in Inhambane province increase crop yields, improve nutrition and work toward a brighter future.
This week, meet Alda Chinguvo from Gaza Province. Our local partner gave Alda a cow to help plough her fields. We travelled to Alde’s village to find out just how much difference that cow has made for Alda and her family.
Last week we introduced you to Ecerina, a grandmother from Mozambique looking after two of her own children and six of her orphaned grandchildren. At the time, Ecerina had just harvested her first crop using techniques in drought-resistant farming that she learned from our local partner Mahahle.
This week we give you an update on how Ecerina is doing a year later.
Ecerina Adolfo Nhamtumbo is from Inhambane Province, Mozambique. She lives in Quene village, where she looks after two of her children and six of her orphaned grandchildren. But feeding eight mouths is no easy feat when your garden soil has turned to sand.
