    Default Namibia - Lucky Draw for overland trip in aid in Lion Club Dementia Project



    https://www.today.com.na/events/namibia-lions-dementia-project


    Namibia, we need your help in making dementia a distant memory. Get involved by buying a competition ticket today. Lions International was founded in 1918. The aim of the organization is to encourage dedicated citizens to engage themselves in service activities for the betterment of their communities under the simple motto "We Serve".

    The Lions Club Henties Bay, is in the process of constructing a centre to care for people living with Dementia in Namibia.

    • Challenging enough is that all old age homes in our country do not cater for the illness, cases are treated wrongly and unfairly too.
    • This illness is increasing day by day, it is becoming more and more common.
    • We do not have the educated skill in the country to look after such patients.
    • Namibia does not have the facilities to look after Namibians living with dementia.

    The cost for the first phase that can accommodate 14 people is N$ 3 million. An amount of N$ 1 825,000 is already available cash in the bank and we still need to raise N$ 1 175 000.

    This funds were sourced as follows:

    • Henties Bay Lions Club – N$1 000 000
    • Swakopmund Lions Club – N$ 750 000
    • Altefeste Lions Club – N$75 000

    We need all the assistance (in cash or in kind) that we can get in realizing our dream – to provide quality care to people living with dementia in Namibia.

    Phase 2 & 3’s estimated cost will be, in current values, also N$3 000 000 each but the cost will escalate by at least the Namibian CPI+ per annum.

    Buy your ticket today on Events Today.

    The prizes to be won in the ticket raffle project:

    Ten day RAW tour – Exclusive self-drive tour for 4 persons guided by About Africa through The Namib desert, Damaraland & Kaokoland worth N$72 120.00. Dates to be determined between the winner and the tour operator.

    Thank you Dirk

    If I may;

    Members, it is my Dad that is running with this project.

    What the Lions club in Henties is doing is simply amazing. Even with the little funds that they have.

    You are welcome to PM me or him if you have any questions. And if you are in Henties, pop by and see what real impact they are making

    We are looking forward to your support

    Cheers and have a blessed weekend

    Gert

    Fellow 4 x 4 enthusiasts,
    please share this as wide as possible. People living with dementia cannot speak for themselves and they also deserve to live with dignity through specialized care.
    Let us talk about people living with dementia – Did you know that in some parts of our country the community regard people living with dementia as bewitched persons and chain them to trees or poles providing them with food and water only. Shocking don’t you think? The reality is that it is the same for all persons living with dementia if the care givers – being it the spouse or other family members and/or personnel in institutions – don’t understand the condition and thus also does not realize what their needs are.

    The reaction thus far is amazing. You should not waste too much time to buy a ticket, it is running fast. Thanks to those of you who already bought one. Thanks Dirk for pacing this on this week's newsletter as well.
