    For women in Zimbabwe, grieving a lost spouse is a process that includes traditional funeral rites, ceremonies to ensure spiritual health and community support, but it can also include suspicion and questions around the circumstances of her spouse’s death. Renny Kudakwashe Mukwavaya was 29 years old when her husband committed suicide. After her relatives began to accuse her of killing him, she turned to the support of her family and traditional rituals. “I was instructed to take the water I had bathed with and my undergarment and go to throw them into a river,” she says. “I was told that this was a process of separating myself from him to ensure that his spirit does not torment me.”⠀ ⠀ 📷 by Gamuchirai Masiyiwa, GPJ Zimbabwe ⠀ ⠀

    Considered to be a rare and expensive commodity in markets throughout DRC’s North Kivu province, nyama ya pori, or bush meat, is mostly available by special order. More often than not, the meat is monkey or porcupine. Yet some say it’s often the same wildlife traffickers who kill porcupines to be sold as bush meat that hunt larger, rare animals like baby gorillas and leopards. In the markets of Goma, residents say they love bush meat, but there is growing awareness about the relationship between how the meat is killed and sold on the national markets and how endangered species are being hunted and sold on the international market.

    Even before the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, the country was already importing more than 50 percent of its food. Today, in the midst of a food shortage, the country’s government is drafting plans and implementing new policies to support the country’s large population of farmers. Yet, farmers still struggle to maintain their crops. “Farmers are desperate and no longer believe in working on the land. And yet Haiti is a predominantly agricultural country, and the majority of the population rely on agriculture for their livelihoods,” says Jean Marc Balame, who has been working in agriculture in southeast Haiti for years. ⠀ ⠀ 📷 by Roselaure Charles, GPJ Haiti ⠀ ⠀
