She said, "The @sidebysidenamibia organisation does incredible work with disabled children and they are truly a place of safety and refuge. I was so blessed to have the opportunity to see and experience what they are doing there with disabled children and bringing awareness to the parents by equipping them with the tools they need to help their child succeed while also helping them get used to “their normal”, as the beautiful @huipi said.

"I know that when these kids receive love they will flourish. I honour organisations like these that bring real change to peoples lives. In this community, all the social workers and parents work together and make this project a success.

"Having someone in my life that also has disabilities and has been experiencing lots of rejection from the public eye, yet accomplished so much, like qualifying for South African Blind Golf. When they are loved well and accepted, they can then truly bloom and see their IS such an amazing purpose that they bring.


Miss Namibia also took to Instagram to share the little joy Annerie gave to the children. The organisation said, "These amazing little ones, sadly are not classified as ‘normal’ in the world, yet they are so extraordinary. Disabilities are misunderstood in so many ways, as quoted by the founder @huipie_van_wyk , “Find your normal.”

"She took the opportunity to do house visits and orphanage home’s with the Side by Side team. Every Tuesday they distributed food to a number of orphan families as well as toys to the children.
@sidebysidenamibia visits these communities to see if there is any need for a therapist of a disability. They skilfully and delicately work and interact with these little one’s.

Annerie said, “When I look in faces of every single little one I see a purpose and a life that is longing to be loved. I honour all the social workers of our country today, either if you are still studying or in the field already.

Today Annerie is celebrating the birthday of Miss Universe 1992, Michelle McLean.

Annerie said, "Happy Birthday Beautiful @michellemcleanofficial. Getting to meet her a few day’s ago as she visited our beautiful country called home! She is a Queen indeed, because of the real love that she genuinely has for people, the country still carries her name with pride. 🇳🇦👑

"Knowing that nothing is a legacy until you really leave something better than you found it. I am so excited for this journey to
@missworld with her support and love"


We love the work Annerie is doing and we wish Michelle a very happy birthday. We appreciate her on this day.
