Admiration for Monica's soup kitchen and her volunteers

In the fall of 2019, Marjanne and Sabina, two young people studying at NHL Stenden in Leeuwarden, spent six months in Namibia for their international internship in the healthcare sector. They also visited the Home of Good Hope (HoGH) soup kitchen and saw with their own eyes how involved Monica Imanga and the volunteers are in the project. Of course, they also rolled up their sleeves and visited the kitchen where the food is prepared for the more than 500 children who come to eat at Monica every day.

Renovation of the kitchen design

Renovation of the kitchen design

November, 2019

They prepare the food that is distributed in Monica's soup kitchen every day in a temporary kitchen at Penduka. Two years ago we ensured that this kitchen was renovated and furnished. As a result, the food could be prepared too far from the dispensing point in a hygienic way. Two years ago, not everything was newly purchased. Many things were reused such as all kinds of kitchen utensils and a freezer. The freezer, which has to work hard in Namibia, really needed updating. But also the cutting boards, spoons, knives and all kinds of kitchen utensils had to be supplemented or renewed.
