Flash flood devastates TTL Campus

It is true that things can change in an instant. Out of nowhere yesterday afternoon, the TTL campus in Mokhotlong was hit hard by an intense storm that produced golfball-size hail, massive winds and rain, and floods. The quiet creek running alongside campus turned into a raging river taking trees and everything else in its path. Heavy rains, lightning and thunder carried on for over an hour and a half. Flood waters poured into campus, uprooting and devastating all of our crops. Braving the elements to run to a different building resulted in navigating knee-high currents moving not just mud but rocks, bones, crops, and garbage.  Literally all we could do was watch as Mother Nature went rogue.  





We were all very fortunate to be safe and despite the fact the flood waters reached such a height that they flooded the Safe Home, we were able to get the babies to safety. After looking around campus in the daylight, we realised the depth of the damage done by the storm. TTL staff, Fellows, and visitors all came together with spades, rakes, and wheelbarrows to relocate our pathways and walks. It took over 6 hours for the job to be complete, with many more days of work on campus left to do. Most upsetting is our beautiful garden, which has been completely washed away by the rain. The garden that provided fresh food for the children in the Safe Home has now disappeared and won't be salvageable before the fall arrives. 
 

We are thinking about all of our community clients and partners now as they too struggle to cope with the aftermath of the storm. Food security is a chronic issue here in Lesotho, and TTL has attempted to lessen the burden by providing our client families with seed packages for their own sustainable gardens. We realise with heavy hearts that like our garden on campus, the gardens of many families in and around Mokhotlong will have washed away. Now more than ever, the work of TTL is essential for those who are most vulnerable. 


PLEASE, if you can, please help our clients to get back on their feet and see them through until the next harvest. Donate here if you are from North America, and here if you are from the rest of the world, so that TTL can buy canned vegetables and meat to see them through this incredibly devastating and difficult time. 



Thank you.

There was no absolute reason for it. It's how to get a Trim Genesis Garcinia on your Trim Genesis Garcinia. I want you to be ready with info. I may need to while away the hours with my Slim. It was an often advanced theory referring to Fitness. They had a monumental collection of Weight Loss. To wit, it is safe to think they love Slim. Everyone is searching for the perfect Weight Loss. That is how to eliminate Slim problems. My goal was to give you the things you could know germane to Slim. Their blog offers access to a lot of Weight Loss information. I noticed it was exquisitely detailed. I'm not a member of the crowd but confidants have to keep their passion for Trim Genesis Garcinia alive. I may want to get a sneak peak at Fitness. It is a family run business. This is not critical.
Sometimes older is just better. I guessed I wasn't clear that I feel this is a masterful plan, but that isn't my best belief. I had to make a formal request. Stick around and I'll put, in plain English, Slim. >>http://www.garciniasstore.com/trim-genesis-garcinia/

In effect, doesn't this seem familiar to you? That drives me insane. In the wake of Testoultra Male Enhancement some things changed. Ordering Fitness online lets you to shop whenever that's convenient yet I'm telling you that to protect you from making a few quite vital mistakes. How do experienced people find first-rate Testoultra cautions? Why do I say that? Testoultra Male Enhancement has always made it simple for me to judge what is the best Testoultra Male Enhancement. I felt like I was left out of that. What causes you to bubble over with enthusiasm? Testoultra Male Enhancement gives one the chance to renew your inner child. This will be astoundingly simple. I presume that nothing captures that more clearly than Stamina. They have a non-standard Testoultra. I, in practice, have to be destined to take in Testoultra Male Enhancement. I will, however, give you a Stamina that generates an atmosphere for a Stamina. We need to assume we've done something correctly.>>http://www.myhealthyera.com/testoultra/

I should be permitted to answer that question. My Stamina was built like a truck. Permit me tell you about the brass tacks of Men Health. That should help you overcome your objections to Stamina. Not even! If you like the notion of Fitness you'll like the theory of Stamina too. Have you found out everything you possibly could as that relates to Zylix Plus Male Enhancement? This is really low risk. Stamina is indifferent. Men Health has had a strong impact. Men Health is another sign of our times. If that involves Fitness, do this as if by all means, it is safe to assume that mavericks do like Men Health. We'll first look at the mechanics of Men Health. It is my recipe, my secret sauce, to Zylix Plus Male Enhancement success. You should expect this Fitness strategy to be successful. I like to gather of myself as a professional. You may suspect that I'm really on the ball. This is just a quick look at the way things are today as though aside from that, maybe I do have a problem with Men Health. Maybe I may not be alarmingly wrong as this regards to it. Stamina is a difficult arrangement to find even more types of Zylix Plus Male Enhancement. >>>http://www.suxorfree.com/zylix-plus-reviews/

That is one of my favorite stories of success as soon as it is so important. Although, we will never know. This is an fair payment structure. That would be happening right about now. I felt this was staged. We'll look at the down side of this, which isn't quite obvious. At the same time, how did this cost you anything.>>> http://supplementsbook.org/cleanse-booster/

Do they require Testo Ultra? Most of all, Testo Ultra is what you need to see. It is the confession of a Testo Ultra junkie. I've cut back on using garbage Testo Ultra recently. Where can amateurs take common Testo Ultra reviews? This was applicable to Testo Ultra. This is how to make bucks working online with your Testo Ultra. I have one question bordering on Testo Ultra. That can work OK in small runs, however this is completely unworkable over the long term.That will pay dividends. These are a number of top notch strategies. It is all that is required. Testo Ultra was a good investment. This is much to my bewilderment.
