Efforts to support Botswana San with their Covid-19 struggles by Natural Justice


"D’kar village has an estimated population of 2000 and is located in the Ghanzi district of western Botswana. For many centuries, it has been home to people of San origin (commonly known as bushmen), which has attracted numerous tourists and foreign visitors to admire their traditional way of life. Visitors are exposed to their unique cultures and their natural talents and skills in art and print works, San rock paintings, craftwork, their production of exotic leather items, wild-food gathering, and particularly, their talents in dance, game-hunting, and game tracking.

On the 2April 2020, the Government of Botswana declared a State of Emergency for six months and immediately initiated a lock-down for 28 days with an extension of another 22 days." - By Natural Justice
