On the 18 July, on Mandela Day, the United Nations Development Programme ( UNDP ) donated blankets and food to Family of Hope Services to some of our families with the greatest needs. We are deeply grateful.
The nights are long and cold and many people in Katutura have no means to keep warm. The air chills a person to the bone and the kids shiver and are unable to sleep. We notice when the children come to the centre for school in the morning, many of them want to stay outside in the sunshine to try to warm up.
Food is always greatly needed. Many kids are lucky to eat one meal a day.
