Anne Mans and Christine Venter from Radiowave 96.7 FM, this week gave N$10,000 to local charity, Hope For Life. The Radiowave team won the prize money as part of the 2013 Bakpro Celebrity Bake-off competition that took place at the Namib Mills Bakery and Training Centre in Windhoek at the beginning of the month.
“Hope For Life runs a pregnancy crisis centre and supports the Jackson’s Ridge Royal Family Kids’ Camp (RFKC) every year. These funds will go towards the RFKC specifically. We are extremely grateful for this generous gift,” says Charlene Uakuramenua, founder of Hope For Life.
Charlene, a social worker by profession, started Hope For Life in 2010. She explains that Hope For Life consists of two parts: a pregnancy crisis centre and camps for abused children, known as Jackson’s Ridge Royal Family Kids’ Camp (RFKC).
The RFKC is an annual five-day long camp with 20 children and 30 adults. The purpose of the camps is to create happy memories for the children, which in turn builds resiliency. The camps also assist with breaking the cycle of abuse in their lives, by showing them what healthy adults look like.
Several other nominated charity organisations also received a donation of N$1000 from Namib Mills.
