Gondwana Care Trust has raised about N$180,000 for charity through its fundraising golf day.
This is the Trust’s second fundraising golf day and was held at the Omeya Golf Course last week, with 20 teams participating.
“We are very grateful that so many companies and individuals immediately and enthusiastically agreed to participate and co-sponsor this golf day for the benefit of less privileged members of our Namibian society. Their contribution will go towards charitable projects that aim to make a difference in our fellow Namibians’ lives,” said Quintin Hartung, trustee of the Gondwana Care Trust.
A Gondwana Village at the halfway point contributed to the golfers’ further well-being on the 18-hole course with boerewors rolls and free beer.
The funds will go towards charitable initiatives such as the Trust’s “MealForTwo” and the “Back-to-School Christmas Bag Project”, which include the donation of food, educational products and stationary for schools, as well as the support of important environmental causes.
The Gondwana Care Trust was founded in May 2017 with the aim to sustainably improve the lives of Namibians, especially those in need.
The Trust is an independent initiative that partners with Gondwana Collection Namibia to ensure that the various social and environmental projects are handled transparently and fairly. It also aims to provide a channel for other like-minded people and businesses to get involved and enhance the good done within Namibian society.
Its efforts include donating food, clothing, bedding, educational products for schools and supporting important environmental causes.
The Gondwana Care Trust Golf Day was inaugurated last year in November. Players received a welcomed breakfast before the start of the Golf Day as well as snacks after play. There was also a live auction during which various items were auctioned off to raise funds for the individual projects supported by the Gondwana Care Trust.
