This organisation saves as a  miracle to the people of Wayawaya , Caprivi Vision spoke to Dr Kombo and he had this to say ‘’ we have been working hard to make sure that we put smiles on marginalised communities  as it has been declared by head of state  that no one should be left out  and try to see how we can contribute towards what the government  has  been doing  the government cannot do it alone they also need the support of nongovernmental organisation( NGOs)’’
