Northern charity Event- for the kids

Back for the second time around aiming to be bigger and better.

The Northern Charity Event (NCE) has announced plans to host its second annual Northern Charity Event’ on 6 July 2019 at the Oshakati Independence Stadium.

In the same vein, NCE has reached out to sponsors willing to come on board to make this event a reality which seeks to improve the lives of all people that have been identified by the NCE and alleviate the school dropout rates.

The Northern Charity Event is a yet to be formalized charity initiative and has attracted over 500 attendees in its inaugural event held in 2018.

This event raised over N$ 15 000 through the generous support of Coca-Cola, Ekanda Chicken, Intercity, Sinois CC, Justice Trading Enterprises CC, and Namibia Private Ambulance Services. This year, the organizers aim to get twice as much.

This charity initiative is aimed at the improvement of the lives of the less fortunate children and vulnerable families living in the Oshana, Omusati, Oshikoto and Ohangwena regions and will in future expand to reach to more people in need in the entire northern parts of the country.

“The northern part of Namibia, though densely populated has a limited number of shelters, orphanages and places where the less fortunate can get any real form of assistance. Churches and the community do what they can, but they only reach a small percentage of those in need. A large number of primary school going children miss school because of various needs like hunger and though the government has feeding programs, due to limited budgets, not all schools carry these out. Children are missing school because they do not have school uniforms and the caretakers cannot afford to buy them uniforms,” one of the organizers, Michael Erickson.

NCE has in the past handed over food, toiletries, and a washing machine to the Dr. Frans Indongo Care Centre which accommodates over 50 children.

“We have identified schools, families with needs and community projects that help the less fortunate and would like to assist them further with their basic needs and help remote schools kick start feeding programs,” he said.
