The Maliba Mobile Clinic made a trip to Mats’o Village. Due to the road conditions the Mobile Clinic caravan was unable to travel and the members of the Clinic were forced to use a Bakkie rather to transport the nurses and medical supplies. Fortunately there was a World Vision building nearby which the clinic was able to use to provide a comfortable waiting area for the patients. Despite the difficulty in travel, the nurses were able to assist 28 adults and 37 children which provided great assistance for the community members as there are no other nearby hospital facilities.

5 Simple Tricks To Make You A Better Runner

With the Lesotho Ultra Trail coming up, here are a few tips for tackling the Maluti Mountains:
1. Focus on the finish line.
A new study from New York University showed that a little thought-tweaking can help athletes get to their destination more quickly. In the study, when walkers focused on the finish line instead of thinking about their surroundings, they were faster and perceived their distance as shorter. This mental trick is not just reserved for one sport; the study’s authors speculate the strategy could work for any activity — like biking, for example — where you can focus on a marker in front of you. You don’t need to reach the final finish to milk this approach for all its worth. Focus on mini-targets for the duration of your workout — like a trash can or tree branch — to break your sweat session into segments. It’ll feel a lot more manageable

The directors of Maliba have strong personal interest and association with the local basotho people especially those from the local villages in the vicinity of Maliba lodge. In fact one of the driving influences in establishing a world class tourist lodge in Lesotho was as a way of providing employment and upliftment of the local people and empower them through skills transfer to help make a change in this very poor country.

Maliba lodge was built using mainly labor from local villages in fact at the peak nearly 100 local basotho’s were involved in the lodge construction and many had the opportunity to learn new skills. Now we are operating, the best of these staff have been retrained as Barmen, security, house staff, gardeners, maintenance, and one has even progressed to a management position. All staff are very proud of “their lodge” and have become valued, highly trained dedicated staff who really look after and interact with our guests.
