Featured Story

Hunters “Pay it Forward” in Windhoek, Nambia.

On a recent trip to Africa, Margaret and Ronnie Williams (SCI Life members from Midland, TX.) and Japsie Blaauw (PH with Omujeve Hunting Safaris in Windhoek, Nambia) sponsored two “Blue Bags.”  All of the items included in the bags were purchased locally from small stores that were grateful for the business, doubling the impact to the community. The blankets cost about $5 each; everything else less than $5 for a total cost of around $10 per person.

Margaret Williams, Japsie Blaauw, and Ellen and Larry Bell handed out all the items (blankets for each, some candy for the children, several food items for all, plastic buckets and pails, spoons, plastic bowls and cups, as well as soap and washing powders and more.

The group of 30 people living in a small, very Spartan hut made of scrap tin and tarps (10 adults/20 children) were very happy and appreciative. They sang “Sing, sing, sing to the Lord” for us in thanksgiving for our gifts.  It was an amazing experience all around.

They will sleep warm tonight… maybe for the first time ever.
