Quotes

"What created the fear of using the pit latrines at my school is an incident in which a goat fell into a latrine. Since then it has been very difficult to convince the pupils to use them" he stated
"I must say there have been overwhelming local and international responses in terms of logistical and financial support. Long-term change is possible when Namibians support and help each other to make their communities stronger and more resilient to disasters like these. So we have been overjoyed to see Namibians coming out inin force to support the Red Cross. The donations of many generous people have made it possible for our volunteers and members to reach out with compassion to embrace those made vulnerable by the drought" he stated
