From blood to soup
“It’s not often that the Blood Transfusion Service of Namibia (NamBTS) has the opportunity to give back. More often than not the Service has to ask for public support to ensure a safe and sustainable blood supply” said Zita Tobin (right) when she presented Mrs Classen of the Swakopmund Soup Kitchen with a donation of N$8000 for new stock. This soup kitchen was established in 2008 and is run by Mrs Claasen who feeds between 80 and 150 vulnerable secondary school learners on a weekly basis. “It’s heartwarming and special to make a difference in these children’s lives by ensuring that they have something to eat” said Tobin.
