According to the United Nations more than 25% of Lesotho is severely food insecure. “A total of half a million people – more than 1/4 of the population of Lesotho – are facing severe food insecurity because of severe drought which has gripped the country.”
“And with forecasts indicating that Lesotho will receive below-average rainfall during the current 2019/2020 season – October to March – communities now face three back-to-back failed harvests.” (https://news.un.org/en/story/2019/12/1054081)
To help meet the needs of the families of our Bible study children, we have secured sponsorship of 50 families at $40 per month from October 2019 through March 2020. Due to below-average rainfall we realize that we will need to extend our feeding distributions in 2020 and perhaps into 2021.
