Suppliers and subsidiaries unite for fantastic party
Building their tradition of caring for children, the Ohlthaver & List Group’s Coastal Orphans and Vulnerable Children’s Christmas party brought joy to dozens of destitute children. The party at the coast follows a week after a similar, very successful event for children in Windhoek. This is the 7th year, the O&L Group has held its OVC party at the coast. Children from Erongo House of Safety; Swakopmund, Tears of Hope; Promised Land Soup Kitchen; Promised Land Play School; Kids Haven, and Jonah Home were treated to a party filled with lots of games, delicious snacks and goodies as well as gifts from Santa Claus.
The operating companies of the O&L Group, Pick n Pay, the Breweries, Namibia Dairies; Broll, Dimension Data, O&L Energy, O&L Leisure, Hangana Seafood, Kraatz Marine, Kraatz Steel, Eros Air and Brandtribe, all work together and in collaboration with their main supplier, to make this an unforgetable day for the children. Tanja Payne, a Hangana Seafood employee and member of the OVC Christmas Party committee: “Every year we look forward to this event as it brings such joy, not only to the hearts and faces of the little ones, but also to us as employees. We try and accommodate all orphanages in the Erongo Region and also venture out to look for other vulnerable children within our community to spoil during the festive season.”
External sponsors that contributed are Guans Packaging; Salon Nailika; Omega Security; Afrox; Extreme; Party Kidz; Rent-A-Toilet; Chip & Dip; Susan Herridge; Fruit & Veg Walvis Bay, and The Abbotts. “Seeing the smiles on these children’s faces makes all the hard work worth it. I love being part of such priceless experiences, and being part of uplifting the lives of those less privileged. I also appreciate every single helping hand that made this event possible,” said Group Corporate Social Investment Coordinator, Venessa Mwiya.
