CITW Namibia works closely with the Sesfontein Health Centre through a nutrition and deworming initiative, as well as COVID-19 awareness offered jointly through Eco-Clubs.
The facility was established in 1960 by Dr Nell and Nurse Julia Ganuses in Sesfontein. Mr Shikale, who is a registered nurse in charge of the health facility, started a small garden at the clinic, and offers vegetables to young mothers and other vulnerable members of the community who visit the health centre for immunisation.
The garden has corn, chillis, onions and beetroot, pumpkins, tomatoes and spinach, as well as pawpaw and banana trees.
On her recent visit, Namibia Programme Co-ordinator and Community Liaison Agnes Tjrare donated a grapevine and vegetable seeds for the garden.
