The Swakopmund Lions Frail Care Centre became the first beneficiary to receive part of the funds raised through the Bank Windhoek Golf Day in Aid of Welfare, which took place on 13 September. The Bank Windhoek Golf Day in Aid of Welfare raised N$130 000 this year.
The old-age home in Swakopmund, through the Lions Club, received N$15 000, which will be used to continue rendering services to the elderly citizens and to operate the frail care unit. The Lions Frail Care Centre was established in 1995 and is part of the Lions Senior Centre, which comprises of the Lions Old Age Home and the Lions Retirement Village, all run by the Swakopmund Lions Welfare organisation.
“We are very grateful for this donation which will help us to care and provide nursing services to the elderly, who need our assistance as they are unable to care for themselves due to their deteriorating health”, said Hennie Bester, Treasurer of the Swakopmund Lions Club.
“Bank Windhoek understands that elders find it hard to care for themselves due to their fragile conditions, not to mention the high cost of living. They therefore need our assistance and we should continue to respect and care for them as they have worked hard to contribute to our society and who we are today”, said Paul Schrader, Branch Manager of Swakopmund Branch.
