Namibia

Day 15)

Despite the delay, our long-cherished dream to provide our children in the 5-Rand community with the best is becoming reality because of the support of our partners:
Sportive4kids, Nelson Schoenen and Wintermans Foundation. I am so grateful for the support.

Not that long ago, in the beginning of October 2016, I visited Namibia. I went to the projects and spoke to all the project managers, Cecile Thieme our country director and the board of Obnam.

A blast from the past, return to “New Jerusalem” in Midrand

Day 14) Back at New Jerusalem

Today’s highlight is our visit to New Jerusalem. New Jerusalem is a former project from Orange Babies; a project we assisted in financial and management support for more than 6 years. The start-off involved the renovation of the orphanage. This was necessary due to poor hygiene endangering the health of the babies and the 15 toddlers who stayed in the orphanage.

With the support of our ambassador, Herman den Blijker, we renovated the entire kitchen, including ...

FIRST VISIT TO CAPE TOWN – YABONGA

The first post in our travel report of Orange Babies founders, Baba Sylla and John Kattenberg, to all the projects in South Africa, Zambia and Namibia (written by Baba).

Day 1 –

A lunch is scheduled with the Community Mothers, my “true heroes”…Who would open up their houses on a daily basis to 25 vulnerable children? Kids who have been through a lot? Only these moms can do this, maybe because they, themselves are HIV positive and know the feeling of being ...
