The COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing lockdown in Zimbabwe, presented challenges to the communities in Nkayi that forced them to re-evaluate the future. HEFO took the opportunity along with community stakeholders to sensitize and inform on the dangers of the disease and precautions that need to be adhered to, through personal hygeine and social distancing.

Conservation Agriculture is a key to ensuring that resources such as water and animal manure are utilized effectively, this in turn improves the soil and increases the expected yields from the plants. HEFO has also helped introduce the planting of herbs and other garden vegetables as a way of not just supporting food security, but promoting healthier, more balanced nutrition that improves overall well-being in light of the COVID pandemic and perennial drought.
