NEW YORK, NY – (August 10, 2022) – In support of the Namibian Governments efforts to establish a publicly accessible Dialysis Centre, Grandview Klein Diamond Group Namibia, in conjunction with PhillCo Development Foundation and its retail jeweler partners are planning to donate a set of three highly modern dialysis machines valued at over 2.000.000 N$ (approximately $120,000). The Centre will be called the Grandview Klein Dialysis Centre. (Photo courtesy of "Hospital Man via Shutterstock).

Grandview Klein Diamonds Namibia has been a Sightholder since 2008 and operating at their facility in Windhoek Namibia. According to its retailer partners, PhillCo Development Foundation has been created in order to source and fund local developments for poverty eradication. Since its inception, the partnership has been founded on the strong commitment of being active, where it matters most. Multiple orphanages have been supported in building projects as well as the supply of daily needs.

Retailers Join Educational Trip to Namibia

In August 2022, Grandview Klein Diamond Group Namibia will initiate an educational trip to Namibia for 10 internationally renowned Jewelers, said the company's release. Part of this tour will be to visit communal projects and experience first-hand in which areas involvement is most needed. The health sector has been identified as the most critical area in need of immediate support.

“This commitment from Grandview and our supporting jewery retailers is going to bring much needed dialysis equipment to the Namibian people,” said Moshe Klein, President of Grandview Klein Diamond Group. “We have been involved in select social programs in Namibia which include the building of orphanages and monetary donations to agencies to help provide food and supplies. This is a continuation of our long history and commitment to helping improve the communities in which we are involved. Our dedication to this cause is unmatched and we hope other US corporations will follow suit in other developing countries throughout the world.”

Retailers Speak on Initiative

“In the day and age where Russia has seen heavy sanctions placed on its exportation of diamonds, it has become critically important to work with a trustworthy supplier like Grandview Klein and Moshe,” said Stan Razny, President of Razny Jewelers, based in the Chicago area. “Our customers have become highly educated as to where their diamonds are sourced and are hyper-focused on purchasing non-conflict product, which is why our direct supply chain from Grandview Klein is more important than ever.”

“I can’t begin to tell you how important it is to partner with the countries in which mining is so prevalent,” said Larry Stokes, Owner of Korman Fine Jewelry, Austin, TX. “We are redefining the process from the mine to design by discovering ways we can assist the local communities. During this trip we will be donating much needed, and critically important life-saving dialysis machines to the people of Namibia. These machines will not only deliver a resource for people in need today, but will inspire corporations that have a desire to reinvest their dollars with the people of Namibia for tomorrow.”

“As the former President of the American Gem Society, I think I can speak for everyone when I say we are thrilled to be a part of this incredibly important trip to South Africa,” said Clayton Bromberg, President of Underwood Jewelers, Jacksonville, FL. “In addition, during this trip we will also be announcing a brand-new college scholarship program for young adults in Namibia. We as jewelry retailers have made it a priority to ensure that these underserved and developing communities are given the same opportunities as we were, and that’s what it’s all about. Additionally Michael Richards, immediate past President of the American Gem Society and Vice President of Underwood Jewelers will also be attending the trip to witness what will undeniably be an eye-opening experience,” said Bromberg.

In order to set a milestone in Namibia’s corporate community, there will be a handover ceremony of the new machinery/Centre during the trip which will take place on August 10, 2022. This will be followed by a dinner event with all relevant line ministries (Ministry of Health and Social Services; Ministry of Mines and Energies and Ministry of Trade and Industries) some industry professionals as well as Centre management, according to the Grandview Klein release.
