Feeding and Clothing AIDS Orphans in Rundu
In northern Namibia up by the Angolan border is the town of Rundu where some of the poorest people in Namibia live. They also have an AIDS infection rate in excess of 25% which results in many orphans. The Kehemu Catholic Church sits right in the middle of the worst part of this town and serves these very poor people. A large picnic shelter with a storeroom and cooking facilities was built in 2005 and sits at one end of the church property. Tables and benches were also built for the children. A donation was given for some playground equipment which was added. Since 2005, we have been serving more than 200 orphans each day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We also give away clothes twice a year; in the spring we give summer clothes to the orphans and in the fall we give winter clothes and blankets to the orphans. The photos below show our soup kitchen and some of the orphans we serve. Recently we have received the kind help from an Italian NGO named Ketuko Trust who is running the Kehemu Soup Kitchen for us now with continued financial support from us.
