“Art for food”
Fundraising to support namibian women
MAY 2020 “It doesn’t matter where you are, it depends on what you do where you are”
Two thousand local women, gathered in small working groups, are involved in the production process of Marula Oil in the North of Namibia.
Due to the global COVID-19 crisis, these women and their families are suffering from lack of incomes. For them, the real danger is hunger.
AURUM Africa partners are offering paintings by listed African artists to provide food. All the proceeds of the action will be sent to Mrs Ulla Shilumbo, our contact person in Namibia.
Ulla will buy basic foodstuff (rice, flour, millet, sugar, beans…) and will distribute it among the most disadvantaged and needy families.
