A hungry learner who could not concentrate in class, inspired Cecilia Nakashole to establish Ezra's Nest Soup Kitchen.

Nakashole who is the principal of Narraville Primary School, founded the soup kitchen which operates in Walvis Bay and Swakopmund on 26 March 2017. "I felt the need to share with those who are less fortunate. The ultimate goal is to share my blessings with everyone," she said.

Four volunteers help run the soup kitchens. The Swakopmund kitchen operates from Nakashole's home once a month, whenever funding allows. The Walvis Bay based kitchen operates every second week in Narraville at the Narraville Primary School. "During the holidays we mostly cater for kids in Narraville where a lot of parents lost their jobs due to the Covid-19 pandemic."

Nakashole funds the soup kitchens to the tune of N$7 000 a month. She occasionally receives assistance from businesses at the coast and appeals to the residents of Walvis Bay and Swakopmund for assistance to enable the soup kitchens to continue feeding less fortunate persons. "Lets donate to those who need it. We accept clothes, shoes, blankets, canned products and donations of any kind."

Those interested in helping can contact her at 085 771 7010.
