The Walvis Bay Private High School (WBPHS) Rotary Interact Club and the Janet Martin Charity Foundation are joining forces in aid of a Baby Project which focuses on helping children and mothers in need.
The club requests support from the community by means of donations.
“It is no secret that baby products are expensive and some individuals are struggling to meet the needs of babies. Giving is more than just doing so for the sake of a status. It is all about making a difference,” said Neille Jansen, a member of the WBPHS Rotary Interact Club.
The club is collecting all sorts of baby products, be it sanitary items, food items, nappies, toys, clothes and monetary contributions to assist either children or toddlers.
The donations will be distributed to the mothers in need of such items by the founder of the Janet Martin Charity Foundation, deputy mayor Penelope Martin.
A recent media report highlighted the plea of a single mother of eight living in the DRC settlement in Swakopmund. She is struggling to make ends meet and requested assistance from the public to foster her children.
