Street Store offers charity through love and bargains

Civil engineering student Mavis Elias (left) chilling with street urchins on the hunt for a bargain. Mavis founded the Love is Charity organisation in 2012 after the plight of children living on the streets caught her heart. Following several successful charity drives, she hosted Windhoek’s first Street Store last weekend at the Palm Tree Park opposite the railway station. The Street Store offers homeless youngsters an opportunity to pick items they need from a large collection of stuff donated by wellwishers. Mavis later said it was a roaring success. The Windhoek event was mirrored by a similar drive in Walvis Bay. See article on page 9.
