Anaki's Trust Fund

Hello, my name is Alice Barker and I’m a brand ambassador for The N/a’an ku sê Foundation, which is a conservation organisation located in Namibia, Africa.

I first joined N/a’an ku sê in June 2019. I have cerebral palsy and use a powered wheelchair, but I’m 100% determined not to let that stop me from making a difference. I just want to work hard and make the world a better place.

In 2020 I was introduced to Anaki, who, like me, has cerebral palsy. Anaki is part of the San tribe, who live in a rural community in Epukiro, Namibia. The N/a’an ku sê Lifeline Clinic, which is in Epukiro, has been supporting the impoverished San communities of Namibia’s rural east since 2003. Marginalized and fighting for survival, the San teeter on the edge of society. The Lifeline Clinic provides free medical treatment, nutritious meals and all the care that it possibly can provide. It was here that Anaki received her diagnosis of cerebral palsy as a child.
Life was hard on Anaki. Up until very recently, she and her grandmother were living under a tree, with no shelter of any kind. Thanks to fundraising efforts however, in December 2020 N/a’an ku sê volunteers were able to build Anaki and her grandmother a new house. It felt wonderful seeing Anaki happy; despite our obvious differences, we both had cerebral palsy, and as far as I was concerned, that made us sisters.
The thing about sisters is that they always look after each other. Originally, this fundraiser was set up to try and help Anaki's mother, who was unfortunately mentally ill and homeless. However, she tragically died before a home could be built for her. Now, the fundraiser that was originally set up to reunite Anaki with her mother has become her trust fund, ensuring that she lives a comfortable happy life (Tania Victor, N/a'an ku sê's Finance Manager, is acting as Anaki's beneficiary). She does not have much, and I want to make sure she never wants for anything again after all the hardships she has endured. Any donation you could give would be gratefully received, and make my sister very happy indeed.
Thank you (or as we say in Namibia, enkosi),
Alice Barker
