The Greatest Wealth is Health

We are involved in initiatives that provide access to healthcare, especially in remote regions, through recommended projects such as the UNICEF/Ministry of Health and Social Services Health Community Workers programme which provides basic clinic services.

We address sound mental development through improved nutrition in early childhood development, as well as improving sanitation for schoolchildren. The Namibian Children’s Heart Research Foundation was founded by the late Mr. Harold Pupkewitz, together with cardiologists and heart surgeons, to benefit 30 000 children annually.

Another flagship project is the Otjomuru Community Clinic and nurses’ home in the Kunene Region, a project of Dr. Libertina Amathila and funded by the Pupkewitz Foundation. The community clinic provides health services to 1000 members of a marginalised community living in the Zebra Mountains.
