Mission Namibia raises funds

Alison Royle hosted a “Friend and Fundraiser” event Oct. 5 in her Del Mar home on behalf of Mission Namibia, a nonprofit organization she founded just over a year ago.

Royle, a native San Diegan, found her passion in bringing health and education services to the women and children of Namibia after a trip to the country five years ago to help two dear friends in the rebuilding of St. Mary’s School.

More than 150 friends, relatives, neighbors, associates and community leaders who support Royle’s efforts in Namibia. Her living room transformed into a photo gallery of her experiences in the small African nation. Royle addressed the crowd as they gathered to hear about Mission Namibia’s progress over the past year, and what the future holds for this foundation.

Also on hand, were several students from The Bishops School in La Jolla, who will make the journey to Namibia next summer to work on a building project in collaboration with Mission Namibia.

Over $10,000 was raised at the event to support the organization’s projects abroad.
