About the foundation
SIAMA Children Namibia (SCN) is a Dutch foundation dedicated to the underprivileged children in Namibia. Namibia is a poor country with big problems. AIDS rates increase by the day and are so frightening that the next two generations have major problems. Unemployment is around 40%, leaving
many families have little or nothing to eat. For many disadvantaged children of Namibia a very rosy picture of the future.
To make a difference in the lives of some of these children, Loek and Ada Schuit,
Theo Möllers and Betty Ruygrok (former president of SIAMA) have bought a piece of land with an old farmhouse in 2003 in Omaruru, a village 240 km northwest of the capital Windhoek. SCN has worked to rebuild the farm in such a way that it could be registered as a children’s home. On January 11, 2006 SCN were able to open their doors to the first children. Today they provide 15
children with shelter, food, clothing and, if necessary school fees. By opening a children’s home to support these children’s education, they will grow up in a loving environment and they get to eat healthy. For these children this means a chance for a better future!
