Thanks to water from a sand dam that MCC helped to build in Maule Maule, Mozambique, Tino Gente is tending the first garden she’s had in her 45 years in the village. The tomato she’s just picked will be used to make a sauce for chima, a porridge of ground maize, sorghum or millet that she’ll feed to her husband and eight children. She laughs as she points to her stomach. “We are eating a lot more vegetables now, you can see that our bellies are full,” she says. “We had kids who were not healthy, but now they are.”
