Namibia: Aktion Sonnestern

Hitradio Namibia 99.5FM raised N$262,777 through its charity drive "Aktion Sonnenstern" over the summer holidays. Last year, Aktion Sonnenstern, coordinated by Doris Meyer, collected N$235,000 for the Cancer Association.

"I am extremely grateful for the excellent support we have received from our listeners. Without their dedication and generosity this project would never have been such a success. It's great that we took our hands to help people in need", commented Meyer after announcing the outstanding results of her fund-raising initiative.

This year the following three organisations each received N$87,592.37: Cancer Association of Namibia, Okanti Foundation which supports chronic ill patients and those waiting for organ transplants, and MS Namibia which supports people with Multiple Sclerosis.

"Hitradio Namibia wants to thank all Namibians, who have supported this charity drive. Aktion Sonnenstern showed once again that Namibians support each other and care for each other", said Hitradio Namibia CEO, Wilfried Hähner.
