Rundu, 18 September, 2021 / 5:00 pm (ACI Africa).
Dozens of vulnerable children in the Southern African nation of Namibia are receiving nutritional support through a feeding program at Don Bosco Youth Center amid COVID-19 challenges.
Facilitated by Salesian Missions, the U.S. development arm of the Religious Institute of the Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB), the initiative at the facility in the Apostolic Vicariate of Rundu in Northern Namibia benefits more than 100 children.
SDB members at the Center have been able to feed vulnerable children who are part of the Don Bosco pre-school and parents, the leadership of the project has said in a report shared with ACI Africa Wednesday, September 15.
“The project benefited 123 children ages 3-11 who are from poor families, orphans and from families headed by children. They also provided hand sanitizer for the prevention of COVID-19 and bought blankets,” Salesian Missions officials in the report published Monday, September 13.
Then Center’s Project Manager, Fr. Louis Malawa, acknowledges the entity facilitating the support saying, “The funding provided from Salesian Missions enabled us to feed vulnerable children who are part of the Don Bosco Center’s pre-school.”
