Dunes Mall extends a helping hand
Charity begins at home
01 September 2020 | Local News
Dunes Mall teamed up with the Checkers store located at the mall to collect essential supplies for people affected by Covid-19 as well as victims of the Twaloloka fire.
Seven shopping trollies were filled with essentials that include food and toiletries, by the Walvis Bay-based businesses as part of their community outreach programme. The supplies was handed over to the charity organisation Azaria - Restoring Faith, to distribute to those in need.
Azaria’s founder Ilanza Klein said that the project helps families with children that are unable to provide for themselves.
“Children deserve better! Azaria means ‘God helped’. I decided to add the words ‘Restoring Faith’ because one of the very first families I helped told me that I had restored their faith, not only in life but in themselves. Nobody will easily understand the meaning of faith and hope until you as a parent cannot provide the most basic needs for your children.”
Azaria assists families across the country.
“I collect second-hand clothing, food, blankets and items that you do not need anymore. Then I distribute the collected items every weekend, sending boxes to families in need every day. The more people that are willing to donate, the more people we can assist.”
This is just one of the few projects currently run by Dunes Mall. The School Loyalty programme has been running since the mall opened its doors.
