Covid-19 only Increases Need for Local Empowerment

Phindile and her children!
Phindile and her children!

Economic empowerment requires two things: identifying under or unutilized local resources or skills and then connecting them to markets where the resources and skills have value.   That is Kudvumisa Foundation’s model. Covid-19 has thrown a wrench in being able to access local resources and broken the connection to markets. In some case, the markets have completely disappeared as borders have remained closed for months now.

Until things begin to return to something close to the old “normal”, life has become very hard for many that Kudvumisa serves.

An example is Phindile in Vuvulane in eastern Eswatini. She is unemployed and raises her children alone. She relies on the Kudvumisa mobile health outreach for her health care. On this day, it was their second day going to bed without food. Thanks to donors, Kudvumisa is able to battle food insecurity caused by the complete breakdown of markets that Covid-19 has caused. Phindile shared "The Bible says we should not worry about tomorrow because God will take care of it." She thanked Kudvumisa Foundation for what they have done for her and added they must continue doing it for others as well.

Unfortunately, Phindile and her children’s situation is not unique. Kudvumisa Foundation will continue to try to develop markets and open opportunities for Phindile and the hundreds like her in eastern Eswatini. In the interim, malnutrition and food insecurity are the major daily hurdles. Your donations help families weather this storm and prepare the way for future economic empowerment.
