As many around the world celebrated Valentine ’s Day with their loved ones, Sanlam Namibia took it upon itself to commemorate the lives lost in the hands of their loved ones.
Early February 14th, the company’s employees took to the streets to share their love with the public and share a moment of silence for passion killing victims.
Over 250 public members who made their way past the Sanlam Center received personalised roses, Valentine’s balloons, wrist bands and candles, which were lit in memory of those who have fallen victim to passion killing.
“The main aim was to bring awareness and more specifically commemorate those who lost their lives through love. We just wanted to be more sensitive towards those who were killed by their partners, that’s why we decided to take it to the streets,” said the communications practitioner Ilke Platt .
