The Windhoek Rotaract Club hosted several soup kitchens for the elderly residing within Gysblok community in close proximity of the Oponganda Centre during the winter season of 2018 (June – August). The club would prepare hearty soups and serve them with brötchens. The Windhoek Rotaract club works under the auspices of “Service above Self”. As a result one of the aims of the soup kitchen was to serve the community within the Gysblok by providing them with a warm meal as well as provide them some company during the cold afternoons. This allowed the elderly to socialise with one another as well as with the Rotaracters present. Every fortnight the club prepared soup and welcomed approximately 40 elders. The senior citizens from the Gysblok community attended the soup kitchen and were accompanied by their grandkids. The club also donated clothes to those who attended the soup kitchen. Each beneficiary was initially given a 5-item maximum, as there were some leftover items they were then permitted to take addition items.. At the end of the winter period Windhoek Rotaract had its last soup kitchen for the 2018 as it is getting warmer, on 18 August there was be a 60’s cake party instead that the Rotaract club assisted with, which was facilitated by Mr. Eckart from the Oponganda Trust. A special thank you is to be given to the Rotarians from the Auas Valley Rotary club who came to support the club with this soup kitchen.
