In deep sadness and in memory of the deceased people who put their heart and soul into our projects and fell victim to the Corona Virus:
On June 28, 2021, "Milly" Melveryne Bock died of the consequences of her corona infection. The employees of the steps for children projects in Namibia, steps for children Germany and the board members of the steps for children foundation in Namibia have been working with her in Rehoboth since 2013. The news of her death comes as a great shock to us. We look back with deep sadness at the years in which Milly wonderfully built up and supervised the Bridge of Hope project.
She selflessly served the Rehoboth Ward, helped the children of the ward survive and learn, gave hope, and helped thousands of families. Milly Bock has always put her own good above the support of others. With her professional and indispensable help and her passion, the support for children in Rehoboth has grown significantly. This great woman fought until the last hour. We admire Milly's life's work. Her death leaves a void that it is difficult for us to fill.
We would like to express our condolences to her husband, children and all of the family. In the midst of grief, we wish them to find what Milly has worked for all the days of their lives: a bridge of hope. A hope that will overcome the darkness and pain of these days and weeks for all of us.
