Day 1 in Namibia

This morning we arrived in Namibia. We (Stephanie, John, Sabine and Joanne) are here to visit the Orange Babies projects and to deliver the clothes we collected at our Orange Babies Fashion Show.
Today was preparation day! First we met our hosts, the lovely ladies of PharmAccess, who will show us around these coming days. In their office we divided all clothes send here supported by Seabourne -about 40 big boxes- in groups for four different projects: Witkop Good Hope Hostel , Ileni Tulikwafeni, Ehalelo Koo Meme and Hope Village. At Hope Village we will have a 'fashion show' together with the kids and the most fancy pieces we collected.
After a few hours of dividing clothes in different age groups (from new borns to pregnant ladies), we headed off for serious shopping. All children of Witkop will receive a 'goodiebag' tomorrow with: toothbrush, toothpaste, balloons, lollipop and some sweets.
We can't wait to go there!

  1. Nice to read the first newsflash from you over there! I'll make sure to keep an eye out for more. Have fun visiting the different projects and make sure to put photo's online.

  2. Hey, I didn't know you took my favourite boxershort to Namibia! Have fun out there. You're doing a great job. xx Cees

  3. Good work. If you carry all those boxes, you will have a good workout ;-) be sure to use the quadriceps instead of your back. Make the children and other people happy out there!
