Themba (Hope)

Themba is a young man caring for his family in Swaziland. Caring has become difficult with the drought which is gripping southern Africa.

"[The young children] wake up in the morning and wait for food from me. They will ask, 'Is there no food today?' They expect it from you as their parents. This drought has deeply affected us."

Watch and listen to Themba as he shares about his life and the difficulties the drought has brought on him as he cares for his family.
