“To care for others as you would care for yourself is essential to restore dignity and love in this dark time calling more than ever for care and compassion. Care to shine for others."

Dear friends, sponsors, partners, and colleagues

Thank you to all our partners who continually trust and support our projects. We cannot do it alone and together we can make a small difference in someone’s life. On 17 March 2020, President Hage Geingob declared a state of emergency. On 24 March 2020, the additional measures in response to the COVID-19 outbreak were announced. They included a lockdown of the Khomas and Erongo regions from 27 March until 16 April 2020.
 
The Lockdown was then extended to the whole country until 4 May 2020, which brought distress to many families finding themselves without jobs, income, and any basic resources to provide for their children, their family, and their elders.
 
The Gondwana Care Trust has been monitoring the situation and has coordinated actions with our still “active” recipients in the MealForTwo program, who are allowed to operate and continue with their programs to provide food. We want to thank you for your commitment and your endless passion and dedication to continue to care for others in this difficult time.
 
IF YOU ARE ABLE TO ASSIST US WITH ANY FOOD/HYGIENIC ITEMS OR CASH DONATIONS TO THE GONDWANA CARE TRUST ACCOUNT (Ref: Food relief Covid19), WE WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE YOUR EVERY HELP SO WE CAN CONTINUE PROVIDING FOR THOSE IN NEED. Please contact us for further information at caretrust@gcnam.com
