Farmers in the Dordabis area have taken the initiative of providing food and toiletries to learners staying in Stephanus Hostel at Dordabis run by the Evangelical Lutheran Church. Gerd Niehaus, a member of the Dordabis Farmer’s Association, told the Namibia press agency that they saw the need to provide food and improve the living standard of pupils after an alert about the situation from the hostel matron earlier this year. The farmer’s association has reportedly been helping the Stephanus Hostel since 2018 when they first donated 120 mattresses to the hostel and is currently in the process of raising funds for three solar geysers and a stove.
