PIH Monitoring & Evaluation Coordinator for Lesotho, Sophie Motsamai, sent this update earlier today:
In Lesotho, we just completed the first phase of a new partnership with the World Food Program, where we did 3 months of food distribution to all pregnant women and children under 2 years old, who were seen at the Bobete and Methalaneng clinics. Food packages were distributed to a total of 71 pregnant women and 231 children.
This project addresses the chronic and acute malnutrition that this small southern African country frequently struggles with, particularly in the rural mountain communities served by clinics like Bobete and Methalaneng. Read more about PIH’s work to fight hunger and malnutrition in Lesotho.
