NEW WHEELS FOR JUSTIN

09 March 2018 | Picture of the day

A music concert organised to raise funds for a new wheel chair for Justin Koch (pictured here with Jo Nicol and Guts Duvenhage) exceeded expectations. The show generated enough funds for a wheelchair and a set of new ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) braces for Justin who has cerebral palsy. He celebrated his 9th birthday on Saturday. Musicians performed for free at the “Bokjol for Justin” in Walvis Bay. Erongo reports on page 5 about other charity fundraising drives that took place at the coast over the weekend. PHOTO OTIS FINCK
