Impressions of Lesotho

Impressions of Lesotho

Traveling in by road through the beautiful countryside of Lesotho, mountains sprawling for miles, we came across the magnificent Maliba Lodge. With a picturesque background, and a warm welcoming from the lodge staff, we knew we had arrived.

The lodge staff were friendly and welcoming, very professional in nature, and clearly a high standard of service was apparent.

As the first nurses invited by the Maliba Trust to meet and work with the St Denis Clinic staff, we were unsure of what our role would be. We were lucky enough to have the lodge Camry to transport ourselves to and from the clinic.

Cuisine of the Mountain Kingdom

Cuisine of the Mountain Kingdom

Maggie Day - Lesotho VolunteerInspired by Ska Mirriam’s international award winning cookbook, Cuisine of the Mountain Kingdom, this month is all about the queen of lijo tsa Basotho, (Basotho Food), Corn or Maize as it’s called here.  We’re just coming into harvest time and the grain stores of most families are slim to none so it’s wonderful to see people now in the fields starting to harvest.    While in January and February it was the standard for people to be carrying peaches and usually eating them at the same time, by March it was time for boiled sweet corn.  Yum.  Picked while the stalks were still green and the kernel were fat, yellow and sweet.

Hand Me Down April 2013

Hand Me Down April 2013

On the 26th of January 2013 our official involvement in the Hand Me Down project began. Clothing had been donated from far and wide and we had a mammoth task ahead of us sorting and repacking more than 100 bags of clothing into black bags to be distributed in Lesotho in April.

An entire day was spent doing the packing by 8 of us, needless to say after we had finished we were all a little pooped. Further donations on clothing have since been flowing in at a steady pace and we will have to have another packing day soon I am sure!

In the heart of the Lesotho Highlands lies the Maluti Mountains, some of the best terrain for high altitude running in the world.

Serving as the “veins” of this region, an intricate network of trails exists along the valleys and mountain flanks, connecting many of the remote villages. Used primarily by livestock and shepherds, many of the mountain passes have been established by hand, allowing people and animals to pass through the Maluti Mountain Range on foot.

It is this ancient philosophy of man’s primal need to explore and conquer his surrounding terrain that has lead to the development of the Lesotho Ultra Trail, Africa’s first Ultra Skymarathon®.
