The Miss High School finalists for 2019 paid a visit to the Katutura Old Age Home on Monday where they, along with choirs from Academia and Hage Geingob secondary schools, reached out to make the residents feel special and loved.

The residents were treated to a lunch sponsored by the John and Penny Group while being entertained by the beautiful songs performed by the two choirs. Small gifts and a donation of tea, coffee, sugar and tea were also part of what the senior citizens received.

According to Leonora Hayle, one pensioner who lives at the home, the day was wonderful and joyous.

“We here at the home really enjoyed every single second of this wonderful day,” she said. She also mentioned how incredibly thankful they are for the gifts and the company.

“These children are amazing, and we wish them all the best and hope to see them again.”

The outreach was organised by Maggy Mbako, Public Relations executive at Namibia Media Holdings (NMH). “It really is all about making a difference and showing love and appreciation,” she said at the event.
