Hollard gives hope to those who need it most


In the world today it is normal to sometimes take for granted the everyday routines we follow, whether it be walking through a shopping mall, taking the dog for a walk or simply being able to stand and watch your children play a school sport. Some of us do not have that luxury, some of us rely on others to assist us to get to where we need to be.

Alfie Truter suffered a tragic accident on his farm near the town of Maltahohe, leaving him paralyzed. He is a farmer, who relies on his body to work and to be able to provide for his family. After the accident everything changed, the reality of the physical constraints were overwhelming to say the least. But a positive attitude and undying spirit saw him through.

Hollard always tries to make a difference where it matters the most, with actions aimed at generating the best possible results for a sustainable outcome on a large scale. This was different, as this was a man in need of a wheelchair, a man who refused to let the tragedy of that day determine the future that he had planned for himself and his family.

We decided to play our part in his future, ensuring that he can still pursue living the life that he envisioned. So we bought him a brand new wheelchair to the value of N$ 32,000.00 because we understand that no matter what happened or how tragic it might be, a simple act of kindness can carry even the heaviest burden and provide hope where before it was dwindling. 

Alfie is still a farmer, a father, a husband and a man with goals that will take courage and strength to achieve, we at Hollard are proud in knowing that we can help in making all of those dreams come true. Let this stand as a reminder to value every moment and never take for granted the everyday things we do in our everyday lives.
