The 2021 edition of the Nedbank for Autism Series was launched on 20 February at Omeya Golf Club, and came full circle at Omeya recently when the final took place. 

The series had a total of 527 golfers from the nine events, and raised a total of N$228 200. 

Last year, the series raised a total of N$130 155 in pledges, considered a major milestone with the economic climate and the sudden Covid-19 circumstances the country was facing. 

The Autism Association of Namibia is made up of parents, their children with autism, adults with autism and professionals who are interested in promoting the well being of persons with autism spectrum disorders in Namibia.  

The association aims to provide support and assistance as well as training in the field of autism to parents and professionals.

Series organiser Dan Zwiebel narrated his delight at the series final. 

“I must admit that the major highlight was the fact that we exceeded my goal of N$200 000 for the autism association. We had so many ups and downs this year, including the Covid-19 third wave, which temporarily halted the event’s momentum, but none of it stopped us from making sure we attain each set goal for every occasion,” he said.

After the final event, a prize-giving dinner was held, where director of the Autism Association of Namibia Petra Dillmann, Nedbank Namibia managing director Martha Murorua, golfers and guests were in attendance.
