Grandview Klein to Donate Dialysis Machines to Namibian Clinic

The diamond firm will give the donation at a ceremony in Namibia this month during a trip for select retail jeweler partners.

Diamond manufacturer Grandview Klein is taking select retail jeweler partners on a trip to Namibia this month, which will include a ceremony to donate three dialysis machines to a public center in Namibia.
New York—Diamond manufacturer Grandview Klein Diamonds is donating three dialysis machines as part of the efforts to establish a public dialysis center in Namibia. 

The machines are valued at more than 2 million Namibian dollars, or about $120,600.

Grandview said there will be a donation handover ceremony at the clinic in Katutura, which will be called the Grandview Klein Dialysis Centre, on Aug. 10. 

The donation is being made in conjunction with PhillCo Development Foundation, which was created to source and fund local developments for poverty eradication, and the diamond firm’s retail jewelry partners. 

Grandview Klein has been a De Beers sightholder since 2008, operating at their facility in Windhoek. 

The company is hosting an educational trip to Namibia this month for 10 well-known jewelers. 

Part of the trip will include visits to communal projects to see which areas may need the most involvement; the health sector has been identified as the most critical area in need of immediate support.

The handover ceremony for the dialysis center donation will also take place during the trip.

This will be followed by a dinner event with all relevant ministries—Ministry of Health and Social Services, Ministry of Mines and Energies, and Ministry of Trade and Industries—industry professionals, and the center’s management. 

“Our industry is moving in a new direction, and it’s for the better. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to jumpstart the forward progress by joining my fellow retailers on this incredibly important trip to Namibia,” said Steve Padis of Padis Jewelers. 
“If there is one thing that I’ve learned in my career, it’s the importance of having a direct supplier. Not only to me and my employees at Padis Jewelers, but to our clients who have not only become savvier in how they purchase diamonds, but for them to know they are being sourced ethically.”    
He added: “My daughter Alexis is the President-Elect of the American Gem Society, and her generation is extremely thoughtful about the planet and how it is left for those who come after, which is why this trip is so important. The people of Namibia need to know that we are their partners and want to ensure they are getting the opportunities we as Americans sometimes take for granted.” 
Moshe Klein, president of Grandview Klein Diamond Group, said: “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get to see firsthand how our business directly impacts the lives of the great people of Namibia. This couldn’t have been possible without the strong, deep relationship Grandview Klein has developed with the Namibian government and our long record of being a model corporate citizen. I’d also like to thank my friends, who also happen to be some of the best jewelers in America, for joining us on this very exciting trip.” 
He added that they are also announcing a scholarship fund for kids in Namibia; jewelers will donate to the fund for every Namibian diamond they sell, and Grandview Klein will then match that amount.

Grandview Klein will also introduce a partnership with a school in Windhoek to donate computers, sanitary supplies, and IT supplies.
