Case study: Bees are helping Carolina
“For me, the most beautiful part of beekeeping is seeing the bees at work. Working with bees has helped me to see things differently and continue to move forward.” Carolina, El Salvador
Carolina is a young beekeeper in El Salvador. She is a single mother with a young daughter. She lives at home with her family.
Carolina and her uncle received funding for five beehives from CAFOD. Thanks to Carolina’s hard work, they now have 20 hives, with plenty of honey to eat. Their aim is to continue to add hives, to produce more honey to sell, and to provide for their family.
Carolina told us: “We know that when honey is mixed with lemon it's good for sore throats. We are seeing all the good that eating honey does.”
