This year’s Namibia Week campaign is fundraising to aid two camps: (1) the Natalia Mavulu Center that houses more than 1,000 children under the age of 8 whose parents have been killed in Namibia or have been victims of South African raids against refugee camps in Angola, and (2) Kwanza Sul, an Educational and Health Center for older youth. The newsletter mentions the WHUR Radiothon, a Community Forum and Reception, SWAPO representative to the U.N. Theo-Ben Gurirab, University of the District of Columbia (UDC), the film “The Struggle to Liberate Namibia”, a Youth Dance-a-thon, Namibia Sunday, Day of Information WPFW, a Run for Namibia, SWAPO President Sam Nujoma, foreign companies, exploiting Namibian mineral wealth, illegal occupation, SWAPO (South West African People's Organization), SASP Co-Charis Adowa Dunn and Sandra Hill, the United Nations, and  computers and passbooks.
