WINDHOEK, 26 OCT (NAMPA) – With their fighter Lukas ‘The Demolisher’ Ndafoluma expected to step in the ring on Saturday, Warriors Promotion turned their attention from the ring to help the less fortunate at the Kids-Soup Kitchen.
The boxing promotions and training camp on Sunday morning visited the centre in Ombili, Katutura where they cooked lunch, gave boxing coaching clinics and advised children on how to conduct themselves in the community.
The Kids-Soup Kitchen was started in 2006 and helps less children in the communities of Ombili, Havana, Okahandja Park and Damara locations. The lunch was prepared at the centre as part of Warriors Promotions social responsibility efforts.
Warriors Promotions boxer and promoter Joseph ‘Smokey’ Hilongwa told Nampa the idea of making lunch for the less fortunate came last week Sunday when he drove pass the Kids-Soup Kitchen.
'Boxers have problems but no one has more problems than kids, because as a kid you are not employed and when there is nothing to eat you will remain hungry. I drove pass this place and saw a lot of kids gathered here on Sunday.
'As such, I decided to find out what was happening and the caretakers told me the whole story. After hearing their story, I decided to speak to my camp to help this people at the soup kitchen with food for the kids,' said Hilongwa.
Hilongwa added that the purpose of the lunch is also to motivate young boys and girls on social behavior and to educate them more about the sport of boxing.
Lukas ‘The Demolisher’ Ndafoluma will fight Pohamba ‘The President’ Mandume for the super welterweight national title on Saturday.
