Try something like

Myitem.body = "Hi " & cell.value & vbcrlf & myitem.body

You may use something like this....
Sub SendEmail()

    Dim rng As Range
    Dim cell As Range
    Dim myOlApp As Object
    Dim MyItem As Object
    Dim strBody As String
     'Specifies number of rows to search for email addresses
    Set rng = Range("A1:A5")
    Set myOlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
     
    For Each cell In rng.Cells
        Set MyItem = myOlApp.CreateItemFromTemplate("C:\Users\.oft")
        strBody = "Hi " & Left(cell.Value, InStr(cell.Value, "@") - 1) & ","
        With MyItem
            .To = cell.Value
            .Subject = "Help"
            .Body = strBody & vbNewLine & .Body
            .Display
            '.Send
        End With
        Set MyItem = Nothing
    Next
   
    myOlApp.Quit
    Set myOlApp = Nothing

As per your code .To = cell.Value, the email addresses are supposed to be in col. A.

Would you please let us know, in which columns, Names and their email addresses are listed?

In that case this should work...
Sub SendEmail()

    Dim rng As Range
    Dim cell As Range
    Dim myOlApp As Object
    Dim MyItem As Object
    Dim strBody As String
     'Specifies number of rows to search for email addresses
    Set rng = Range("A1:A5")
    Set myOlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
     
    For Each cell In rng.Cells
        Set MyItem = myOlApp.CreateItemFromTemplate("C:\Users\.oft")
        strBody = "Hi " & cell.Value & ","
        With MyItem
            .To = cell.Offset(0, 1).Value
            .Subject = "Help"
            .Body = strBody & vbNewLine & .Body
            .Display
            '.Send
        End With
        Set MyItem = Nothing
    Next
   
    myOlApp.Quit
    Set myOlApp = Nothing

End Sub
