The German Embassy Windhoek continues to support communities that are still struggling with the economic aftermath of Covid-19. Families from less fortunate backgrounds in Mariental and surroundings will be receiving food parcels, hygiene products, as well as blankets. 77,400 NAD (approx. 4,600 EUR) will be made available from the Embassy’s micro project fund to purchase and distribute the items amongst the community.
On Wednesday, 27 July 2022, representative of
the German Embassy, Graziella Titus, together with the Women’s Missionary Society (WMS), distributed the packages which include staple foods, as well as hygiene products and blankets, to the community members. WMS is an organization of the African Methodist Episcopal Church– in Mariental.
The families chosen by the Women’s Missionary Society are the elderly and most vulnerable members of their community. The WMS has identified families that are still struggling under the negative circumstances of Covid-19. This being due to job losses or even the loss of family members who succumbed to the illness and who were part of their support system. The German Embassy is glad to be able to support this project and to help alleviate the hardship.
The Women’s Missionary Society (WMS) is an Organization of Women in the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Part of their social responsibility is the “Mission Outreach” which aims at fulfilling the Church’s Vision and Mission to assist the Government in its efforts of alleviating hunger and poverty.
