Metro Community Hero - Emogine Bohitile

Emogine is a law student at the University of Namibia. As part of her Community impact initiative, Emogine had made the decision to aid the Namibian Correctional Services Facility in the extension of their Hydroponic and Aquaponics fruit and vegetable garden.

This garden provides the the offenders and officers with food during this difficult times. Emogine told me that, as a student of the law, it is her duty to aid in the reformation of offenders through activities such as gardening so as to help them become a better version of themselves as well as skilled in gardening once they are released back into society.

Metro Community Hero - Matthew Smit

Integrity means doing a good deed without wanting any recognition for it. Well one of the many good deeds Matt did recently, he made proper doggy houses and donated it to the SPCA along with warm blankets for the puppies for this cold winter we had. Credit is definitely due here... (Matt did not want a picture to be taken of him) To prove my point on his integrity.

Metro Community Hero - Jacki Detlof-Wismer

Jacki runs Wismer Ecke, a German deli shop in the heart of Swakopmund that was severely hit during Covid, yet despite her own financial setbacks, she reached out to family and friends on Facebook offering to make delicious, nutritious soup for those unable to afford it or who were sick. As a trained paramedic, Jacki is able to help in the worst moments of people's lives, providing hope and light in dark times. This is no different to what she has done during these tough times. Jacki quickly became an integral part of the Ciske Covid Task Force and helped produce 720 portions of meals for people at home with covid, 576 bowls of soup for the Swakopmund state hospital patients and over 80 soups and brotchens for the victims of the DRC fire. Jacki also collected clothing, utensils and household items from those that were willing to donate. Wismer Ecke has prepared 32 care packages consisting of fresh vegetables, lentils, beans, stock, tin food as well as numerous healthy meals to covid families at their residence and recently, to the Welwitschia old age home. All this while still running her own business! She is an incredibly kind, generous soul who is not afraid of hard work. Imagine all the extra time and effort this took! She deserves the recognition as a Community Hero, because she is one.

Metro Community Hero - Wilhelmien Redelinghuys

This hero supported the whole community throughout Covid, and continue to do so by regularly sending out "check-up" messages to everyone to see how they are doing, and if you are not doing so good, she go to your house and assist you where she can. She is a registered nurse who use her skills to assist the people she know through the most difficult times, and doing everything she possibly can to bring the community together. She doesn't take any credit for what she does, and I don't think that she know what difference she is making. Spotting her car at someone who is struggling's house, gives me peace of mind that that person is in great care. She is truly the Tsumeb Superhero of superheroes!

Tilla is a pensioner. Not working nor earning a salary, just her pension funds. Yet she has a heart of gold, helping the community by feeding and clothing over 400 kids in our city. She has a little yet gives a lot. Especially in this pandemic that we are all facing, leaving more and more people without jobs leading to hunger and suffering. She still stands strong trying her utmost best to just make a little difference and I appreciated her for doing that we need more people like her in our community.
