Who We Are:

  • How Charity And Care Foundation Was Born.

    In the year 2000, I now the Chairperson and Founder of Charity and Care Foundation, Mrs. Beatrice N.Shilongo, was on a trip to a town called Katima Mulilo in a public transport (a bus). We stopped at a service station in Rundu, where I saw many children from the ages of 6 and upwards, approaching people, begging for money and food. The passengers in the bus that I was sitting in gave some food to them through the windows. It was a very SAD moment for
    me as I had nothing to give to them and it also it left a huge impact on me. From that day, I concentrated on helping children I see on the streets, including those who are infected with HIV/AIDS. Sometimes I would hear on the news, that babies are being dumped in rubbish
    bins, so I told myself that I should really act and prevent this terrible sprit. I started seeking young people who are living in unbearable situations such as young mothers with babies and unwanted pregnancies. I received many responses from them. We were meeting in the parks for counseling and feeding the children. It was GOD who made this trip for me, so that I can see how children suffered and for me to start helping the Orphans and the abandoned.
    The center has grown and is still growing. It cares and feeds more than 170 children including those on the streets. This is how Charity & Care Foundation was born, with two centres now
    for young mothers and for children in Katutura (Greenwell Matongo 133 Lucia Street).

Charity and Care Foundation was formed to serve as an open home and to cather for those children and orphanage in need. We had ministered to the children in and around Windhoek since 2004 through accomodation, food, clothing, and provision of Early Childhood for the little ones amongs our kids.
