Laerskool Walvisbaai donated lunch packs, with drinks and energy bars to the Walvis Bay State Hospital on Friday.

The donated packs will be distributed to hospital staff members stationed at vaccination and testing sites.

Charl Theron, Laerskool Walvisbaai school director, said that the school has a theme each month.

“In August, our theme was responsibility and to close off the month we decided to look at how we can exercise social responsibility. We then decided that frontline workers who are working tirelessly at vaccination and testing sites, needed to be shown the appreciation we felt.”

“This a small gesture. We hope it will motivate other institutions to also get onboard to ensure our frontline workers are well taken care off. To our frontline workers, as a school are with you.”

Erastus Haikela and Lianné van Wyk presented a message on behalf of the grade 4 learners for frontline workers.

“To our health heroes; this is a small token of appreciation for your hard work and constant sacrifice. The character trait we represent is responsibility, and you as health workers take the responsibility when many others have not. We thank you for that.”

Dr Augustu Gawab, acting senior medical officer of the Walvis Bay state hospital, said that the school is sending a message to other entities to support government.

“We are thankful for this beautiful gesture. Our staff are sacrificing their time to ensure that the community at large is taken care off.”

He reiterated that vaccination is the key to saving lives.
“We have several vaccination points and fixed points are at Welwitschia Hospital, Lutheran Church Hall in Narraville and at the Family Clinic in Kuisebmond.”

Besides the fixed points, vaccination sites have been set up at the various fishing factories.

“We are urging everyone to get vaccinated. Currently, only four patients are in hospital due to Covid-19 and the difference between vaccinated and unvaccinated can be seen,” Gawab said.
