Namola will donate R67 for every test done today until it hits R10 000

  • Namola will donate R67 for every SOS test done on its app today up to a total of R10 000.
  • The Namola App is free to download for Android, iOS and Huawei smartphones and – as we can attest to – helps greatly in an emergency.
  • The funds will be donated to the Johannesburg Child Welfare which is also trying to raise R500 000.

Having had to make use of the emergency response app Namola in the past, we can quite confidently say that it’s a guardian angel that every South African should have on their smartphone.

The app is free to download for Android, Apple iOS and Huawei smartphones. While there is a premium Namola Plus service, any South African can download the app and contact Namola’s 24/7 Response Centre in the event of an emergency.

We mention all of this because if you haven’t downloaded Namola yet, today should be the day to do that. This is because Namola is making a donation of R10 000 to Johannesburg Child Welfare on Mandela Day.

“Namola will contribute R67 towards Johannesburg Child Welfare every time someone tests our Namola app this #TestItTuesday, until we reach our goal of R10,000,” reads an email blast sent to users.

To get Namola to make the donation you simply need to download the latest version of the app and test the SOS button. To be clear, you should tap the SOS button and then select test. A Namola Operator will answer at which point you should tell them you are testing.

By midday, the R5 000 mark had been reached which means only about 75 tests have been done. Hopefully a few more folks test the app out before the end of the day or Namola honours the promise of making the R10 000 donation to Johannesburg Child Welfare.

The Johannesburg Child Welfare is also running a fundraising drive over on Given Gain where it has set the lofty goal of raising R500 000.

“Children who grow up without parents or not having the opportunity to interact with their communities. They cannot share the fond childhood memories of having family members that watch over them at all times. Other destitute children in high risk social and economic conditions, for example, those that are poverty stricken and / or homeless, and even those fortunate enough to be in an orphanage also yearn for the love, compassion and support of a parent. Your small contribution towards our children will allow them to reach great milestones and become sustainable members of society, tomorrow, today,” reads the fundraising page.
