Posted January 15, 2021 from Namibia

In few weeks time our schools are opening in Namibia.With this pandemic like all the world parents lost jobs and livelihoods like chicken goats and so on some even evicted from homes.Our organisation forecast on women children and the Youth.Since Christmas I start raising funds for books for children who is going back to school  We have a big problem with stationary toiletries and school uniforms in community.Its very hard to choose who to start giving.The donor feel we must start with grade one we where lucky to finite this week books to almost 30 young ones still many are in need we are happy we could lift a burden for parents we will continue.its Hard at this moment without internet access to be In Touch with my sisters.I hope and pray that someone can come around and pay for us the Centers Wi-fi connection.Thanks for your time reading my story from the Kalahari.We are thankful for the big rains we received this few weeks after many years.

Hello Katrina,

How are you? Thanks for sharing your story. I'm glad that you're continuing with you fundraiser and helping those in need. I would imagine it would be difficult to decide who to give to first. I hope you and your family are safe and well.

Dear Jill
Good morning thank you again. And Again I hope also to be allowed by shopping Center's to continue with booked collection.Yes my family is fine in my personal life I struggle with 2 boys who are draped in Drugs and sometimes alcohol the younger one 20 years is the most difficult one Stealing from the house and by times coolant. whe continue pray and help him.We don't have Goverment institutions or Youth rehabilitation Center's the Private ones are very expensive and sometimes we just have to deal with all troubles..Every sun rising is a blessing.Thats why I keep my energy in the community.
