About Us

Finding Inspiration and Offering Hope

Nampharm Foundation was established as a social responsibility initiative by Nampharm, a Namibian-based pharmaceutical distributor. Nampharm Foundation was established to benefit the children of Namibia. The foundation was founded in 2005 with a specific focus on providing medical treatments for children in need.


Our Story

Since 2005, the Nampharm Foundation, a non-profit social welfare organization, has been 
dedicated to transforming the lives of Namibian children. We began by supporting children 
battling cancer, but in 2009, we shifted our focus to a critical need: facial reconstructive surgery for children born with cleft lips and palates.


We offer this life-changing surgery free of charge, along with holistic care throughout the child's journey. Our support starts from birth and continues until they turn 18. We work closely with mothers, providing emotional support and reassuring them that their baby's condition is nothing to be ashamed of. We walk alongside these children on their journey to transformation.


By providing access to life-changing surgeries and comprehensive care, we pave the way for a brighter future. This ensures they can confidently step into their communities, be integrated and ready to thrive and embrace all life's possibilities.
