Dear steps friends,
we are overwhelmed by the solidarity and the many positive reactions to our reporting. The feedback and the donations that have reached us encourage us in our actions. A big thank you goes to everyone who has given us so spontaneous and extensive donations. However, the situation in Namibia is becoming increasingly acute. That's why we act now!

We distribute food parcels in all of our locations and thus provide the necessary basic nutrition for children and their families.

The situation in Namibia

Namibia is caught deep in the lockdown for protection against infection. So were ours Soup kitchen by the police due to the ban on assembly closed. There are no clear statements about cases of infection. As a precaution, many people are in quarantine.

So far, no one has died of the corona virus in Namibia. However, the effects of the regulations adopted disastrous for the food situation in the country. The soup kitchen offered our steps children the only meal a day. After all, families are now lacking any sources of income. Even the last opportunities to earn money as street vendors, bottle collectors or cleaning workers have been eliminated. The lockdown will take at least 4 weeks until May 4th.

Our solution:

When the children can’t come to steps anymore,
steps come to the children!
