Nadja shows she cares

21 July 2019 | Social Issues

In her first public appearance as Miss Namibia 2019, Nadja Breytenbach, and Michelle McLean-Bailey in her capacity as chairperson of her trust, handed over donations to Hope Village and the Side by Side Early Intervention Centre in the capital.

Both donations were made as part of Standard Bank's Women of Excellence awards, which run hand in hand with the Miss Namibia pageant.

Each charity received goods, including nappies and food, to the value of N$10 000.

Side by Side – the winner in Category A of the Women of Excellence – operates as a day care and early intervention centre for families of children with special needs. Their mission is to provide early childhood development in children with special needs, to train parents as well as the community and caregivers.

Marietjie de Klerk – winner of Category B in the competition – established Hope Village, an orphanage that provides loving and caring homes for children with HIV/AIDS or who are abandoned. It is in the heart of Katutura run by 14 hardworking moms that look after 92 children.

Further support came from a generous donation from Katuka Fishing.
