Peg Herbert, founder and Executive Director of Help Lesotho

Since her first trip to Lesotho in 2004, Peg Herbert, Help Lesotho’s Founder and Executive Director, has written letters to her family, friends and supporters about her experiences and the progress of the organization. These 2022 letters are a little different. For the second time in 18 years, Peg isn’t able to be in Lesotho to write her letters. Instead she will share with you important Lesotho updates, COVID-19 developments and stories from beneficiaries on how they are fairing in this incredibly difficult time.
