In the blistering heat ‘Gogos’ (grandmothers, in the local language) tirelessly plough, dig and plant by hand in the spare land next to the church. There aren’t any taps so they carry water from the church in watering cans.
It doesn’t matter that the heavy Summer rains ruined their garden and weeds have grown so high they look like small trees!
Because for these proud grandmothers, these four overgrown hectares and a
handful of seeds is their only livelihood.
We at Ibhungezi are delighted to report back to yourself and the Archbishop. [more]
