Lesotho- distributed corn powder

On April 20, Tzu Chi volunteers in Lesotho arrived at Matukeng for a distribution.

After getting everything ready, volunteers and aid recipients sang and danced together. Led by a local social worker, a group of villagers sang and danced to thank the volunteers for their continuous help for the past six months.

The relief distribution started with a prayer and then a speech by the village leader. A volunteer read a letter from Master Cheng Yen, in which she warned of possible future worldwide food shortages and encouraged the villagers to work harder to cultivate their land.

The goods distributed included corn powder, cooking oil, and beans. In all, 199 families, or 800 people, benefited from the distribution.
