Proverbs 22: 6 (NLT)
Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.

COVID in rural Namibia

Even in very remote locations in Northern Namibia I found people wearing masks to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to masks (often larger than the rest of the clothes: here is an interesting recycling idea), I even found a hands-free hand wash station in a small public school in the Kunene region.

My mask is bigger than my loincloth

Even the chief in one of the visited villages
was wearing a mask


Deutsche Version - German translation
Selbst an sehr abgelegenen Orten im Norden Namibias fand ich Menschen, die Masken trugen, um sich in der COVID-19-Pandemie zu schützen.

Neben Masken (oft größer als die übrige Kleidung: hier ist eine interessante Recycling-Idee) habe ich in einer kleinen öffentlichen Schule in der Kunene Region sogar eine touch-free Handwaschstation gefunden.
