Clergy Workshop: Religion, Culture and Disability in Namibia

We were delighted to host 10 members of the clergy from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Namibia at our workshop on 15th March 2021 in Ondangwa, northern Namibia. It was a hugely informative and worthwhile event, wherein we heard from so many perspectives and experiences.
