Each year for the past decade and a half the DFNI Charity Ball in London has chosen and helped a very good cause.
Down the years the event has raised very large sums for a numer of excellent and often unsung charities.
This year’s beneficiary is N/a’an ku sê Lifeline Clinic in Namibia. It was nominated by Ermenegildo Zegna Fashion Travel Retail Business Development Director Loris Bellarmi.
According to DFNI, the clinic was set up in 2003 to address the needs of the rural indigenous communities in Epukiro, a remote region of Namibia.
The demand for a basic but comprehensive health service became apparent to medical professionals working in the area when they witnessed the tragic and unnecessary death of a young child due to the failure of ambulance service and hospital staff, largely because the child was a Bushman.
“This vital service relies on the time and dedication of volunteers and donations from supporters to continue to run and serve the communities in need,” DFNI said.
The 2010 DFNI African Safari Charity Ball will take place on Friday 23 April 2010 at the Marriott Renaissance Chancery Court Hotel, London.
