March -Teresa spoke to a women’s group here in Malkerns, eSwatini about Kudvumisa and all its projects with the crawfish project being the highlight. Out of the meeting, one lady donated a freezer so that we can sell crawfish out of our shop in Ezulwini.
May- Teresa finished up her work at Swaziland Breast & Cervical Cancer Network as she handed her responsibilities over to a new Board.
