THIS IS THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE FOR THE HOME OF GOOD HOPE, A CANADIAN FOUNDATION

We are grateful for the incredibly generous donors whose contributions enable the Home of Good Hope to Provide for the children.

In order to most effectively utilize those dollars our goal is to keep our administrative cost to a minimum. It is also our wish to keep our donors informed about the progress and successes at the Soup Kitchen. To achieve those two very important goals we will post reports on the website every three months.

EILEEN GREENE

eileen greeneMonica Imanga and Eileen Greene, a Canadian Nurse met at Katutura Hospital while Eileen cared for Monica’s beautiful 16 year-old daughter Maria who eventually died of AIDS. Monica and Eileen became friends. In 2007 they started a “soup kitchen” in memory of Maria. They called it The Home of Good Hope, and began with a view to providing food for about 40 children who were HIV-positive. Eileen personally provided the funding and Monica did the cooking for the soup kitchen in her humble home. Monica transported the food by local taxi to nearby Katutura, a poverty-stricken township where many of the children lived. At that time they had no structure in which to serve the food, so it was doled out as the children squatted on the side of the road. Soon it was found that there were many other children in the neighbourhood who also only received food sporadically so they invited them to join in on the one meal a day they were able to provide.

 

 

Eileen travelled to London July 2015 to receive the International Care Ethics Observatory’s Human Rights and Nursing Award for her charitable and humanitarian efforts with the Home of Good Hope. Representatives from 45 countries attended the recognition ceremony, giving this Namibian initiative centre stage and global recognition.

BIG CHANGES

Big changes are afoot at The Home of Good Hope in Canada. Canada's Home of Good Hope is relocating in Namibia.

Due to our inability to purchase land, we have made the decision to relocate and start a brand new endeavour. The Ombudsman has declared that the current site is an "unsafe, unhygienic, and unconducive environment".

We will keep you updated and will be breaking ground on a permanent facility in a new location as soon as feasibly possible.

Thank you for your suppor! Eileen.

We accept tax deductable donations
through our trusted online partner.
