Resilience of Penduka's women - Namibia

Also in Namibia, Corona has had a huge negative effect on tourism, leaving the women of Penduka with no income. With the commissioning of the water pump we financed, they were able to start a vegetable garden for much needed food. What resilience during this difficult time!

Our bush is catching on!


It has been a summer with not too long dry periods. Many of the trees we planted have caught on well and have good leaves, thanks to the humid summer.
This photo is from August and was sent to us by the nature manager Groninger Landscape Foundation.

Re greening with bunds


Arnout has given his charity budget 2020 to justdiggit. With this support 151 bunds were dug. A bund is a moon-shaped pit that catches rainwater in dry areas. Through the bunds, water can get underground again and reaches the seeds and roots. This way vegetation can recover. Besides this, he has directly supported an African farmer who digs the bunds. 


Schisis surgery successful!


Last year Miriam donated part of her personal charity budget to Tess Unlimited. With this donation, 10-month-old Elvia was operated on her schisis in Guatamala and as you can see, the operation succeeded!
Guatamala is a third world country and Schisis surgery is not reimbursed in public hospitals there.

Penduka's beautiful mouth masks 

Last year we gave financial support to Penduka in Namibia for the purchase of 1200 metres of cotton fabric and 400 metres of printed matter. Among other wonderful accessoires, they made beautiful mouth masks of it. By purchasing a Penduka product you do not just buy a beautiful and unique product, you also contribute towards a better life for women in Namibia.

Look at the safari tent we sponsored in 2017!

We got this pic from De Vakantiebank. We sponsored this safari tent in Gasselte, in which people who normally can't affoid it, get a chance to have a nice holiday. We love it, don't you?

 

Activities for clients of Kledingbank de Zeecontainer
