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 treatment to children in need.


Our Story

Since 2009, the Nampharm Foundation Trust has been the only charity organization in Namibia to offer free facial reconstruction surgery. This commitment to improving the lives of our children underscores the foundation's dedication to making a positive impact on our community.

Our Vision 

The greatest legacy we can leave our children is a healthy start in life. That’s why the Nampharm Foundation has dedicated itself to improving the lives of vulnerable children who suffer from severe health conditions. 


The main purpose of the Trust is to utilize the Trust funds to provide medicine, medical

treatments, and information sessions for children suffering from specified illnesses in Namibia.


Our aim is to uplift and improve the quality of life and health of individuals in Namibia, or any other comparable objectives as determined by the Founder and Trustees on an ongoing basis.


Every child, regardless of their financial situation, deserves a bright future and by providing high-quality medical treatment and care to those in need, we aim to create a world where all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential. 

Our Mission

Through amazing partnerships, caring healthcare workers, and those kind enough to donate, we aim to achieve our goal of empowering children and their families to lead healthy and fulfilling lives.

Our mission is:

  1. To raise funds throughout Namibia as well as internationally.

  2. To build relationships with Government and selected stakeholders and to successfully facilitate all processes involved to uplift the current situation and quality of life of Namibian children born with facial deformities.
