Die Namibiese haweowerheid (Namport) het Vrydag (1 Oktober) deur sy maatskaplike beleggingsfonds (NSIF), N$300 000 aan die Walvisbaai Kids Haven geskenk.

Die NSIF het reeds agt jaar gelede begin om Kids Haven te ondersteun, en deur hierdie verbintenis het die NSFI reeds meer as N$1,5 miljoen (insluitend die jongste skenking) in die kinderhuis belê.

Kids Haven se stigter, Maureen Baard, het Namport ’n ware vriend genoem. “Namport het deur die jare heen konsekwent ’n helpende hand aan ons verleen.”

Die NSIF se voorsitter van die werkkomitee, Tana Pesat, het Namport se verbintenis beklemtoon om hande te vat met gemeenskapsgebaseerde programme wat daarop gemik is om die lewens van die Namibiese kind te verbeter.

“Die feit dat ons onlangs die Dag van die Namibiese kind herdenk het, maak hierdie spesifieke skenking nog belangriker en van pas."

Pesat het gesê die fonds - wat in 2006 gestig is - het al meer as N$35 miljoen bewillig om die lewens van Namibiërs in al 14 streke van die land te verbeter.

“In die vorige boekjaar (1 April 2020 tot 31 Maart 2021), is sowat N$2,8 miljoen bestee.”

Sy het gesê die fonds se vier maatskaplike pilare (gesondheid, entrepreneurskap, opvoeding en omgewingsvolhoubaarheid) onderskraag Namport se doelwit om die lewensbestaan van alle Namibiërs op ’n positiewe manier te beïnvloed.

“Die fonds se mandaat is ook in ooreenstemming met die Verenigde Nasies se Volhoubaarheidsdoelwitte, met die klem op geen honger, goeie gesondheid en welstand, en kwaliteit onderwys.”

Kids Haven is in Mei 2009 gestig om mishandelde, kwesbare en verwaarloosde kinders op Walvisbaai te help.

Die veilige hawe bied ’n beskermde omgewing vir hierdie kinders totdat hulle volwassenheid bereik.

Die kinderhuis huisves tans 30 kinders en bied ook ’n “baba-lyn” vir ma’s wat nie na hul babas kan omsien nie.

Sulke moeders ontvang bystand om liewers hul babas aan die instansie te oorhandig.
