Playing volleyball to help young patients
“Every year the DTS Volleyball sections donate part of their income generated from the annual DTS Windhoek Draught Volleyball for All tournament to charity organisations that are in desperate need of funds” said Heiko Kesselmann of the DTS Exco.
This year DTS Volleyball donated N$12,000 to the Okanti Foundation, formerly the Daniela Medical Trust, which supports children and young adults who require organ transplants as well as chronically ill children and young adults.
The Okanti Foundation was started by the mother of Damian Sagner, an infant born with a serious heart defect, to cover the costs of a series of operations done in South Africa. This week she said Damian is well and leading a life as normal as any toddler’s.
The next DTS Windhoek Draught Volleyball for All will be held on 06 February 2016 and preparations are in full swing with Windhoek Draught once again being the main sponsor.
