Hodago Fishing handed over 25 food parcels to the office of the governor, in support of World Food Day that is commemorated in Utuseb, which is a small settlement in the Erongo region.
The food parcels which are worth N$10 000, contain items like powdered milk, mielie meal and soup packets.

Edward Jacky Gaingob, who is the control administrative officer at the governor’s office in Swakopmund, was grateful for the gesture. He said that World Food Day was established in recognition of the date of the founding of the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations (UN).

Gaingob added that ErongoRED also donated food parcels worth N$10 000.

Hodago Fishing general manager Harold Kaune said it's their pleasure to join hands with the governor's office and the Erongo region at large, to make sure that fellow Namibians also benefit in some way from the fisheries resource.

In the past Hodago Fishing supported fire victims at the coast. “We are trying our utmost and we do this in the best interest of all Namibians,” Kaune said.
