Help pours in for coast’s recently born triplets

On 28 October this year, namib times reported about triplets born at Swakopmund State Hospital, the mother of the babies asked this paper to help her find assistance so she can raise her babies without having any difficulties, especially with daily necessities such as clothes, toiletries and nappies.

Today the babies of Meme Taimi Ekandjo are well and growing at a very fast pace. Last week Friday, 18 November, the OSK Debt Collectors handed over a great number of baby products to Meme Taimi’s babies. According to the Marketing and Communications Manager of OSK Debt Collectors Mr. Titus Kapangelwa, giving back to the community is part of OSK Debt Collectors social responsibilities. “We give back to the community annually towards the end of each year, in the past we gave a lot to the northern communities, but now that we have a branch in Swakopmund and we read about Meme Taimi’s story, we decided that she will be the first person we are going to help this year.” Ka-pangelwa further said that they also have triplets in their family and know and understand how hard it is to raise three babies at the same time “it is a struggle and not easy at all” he said.
OSK Debt Collectors bought blankets, toys, night potties for when the babies grow up, cosmetics, shoes, nappies and wet wipes, feeding bowls, clothes and many other items for each of the babies. Meme Taimi was in Arandis by the time OSK called her to give her the good news and she was even more excited when Mr Kapangelwa offered to go fetch her just so she can come and receive her things with her babies. She said since the report in this paper, she has received help from a few people in Walvis Bay, Arandis and now Swakopmund “I am very thankful for all the people who have helped me” she said.
