The Walvis Bay Round Table 36 recently received a N$200 000 donation from the Namdia Foundation.
According to Beverley Coussement, public relations officer of Namdia, this is the company's contribution towards relieving the burden brought on by Covid-19.
“The Namdia Foundation donated a total of N$2 million to various organisations and projects in the fight against Covid-19. We are excited to have joined hands with Walvis Bay Round Table 36, as part of our continuing efforts to fight the effects of the pandemic.”
She said the N$200 000 donation will be used for the Round Table's Feed a Family project, which they have been running since Covid-19 reached Namibia.
“The project is aimed at assisting vulnerable communities in Walvis Bay by providing them with food parcels. This will go a long way in bringing some relief for families who are struggling to put food on their table.”
This is the second donation made to Walvis Bay Round Table 36. The first donation was N$50 000 made in July towards the Twaloloka recovery initiative.
Funds generated for the fire victims are being channelled towards projects aimed at rebuilding the community.
Other projects and initiatives that have benefitted from the N$2 million Covid-19 donation thus far, include N$1 million to Government's National Disaster Fund, N$200 000 to the SOE CEO's Forum, N$150 000 to the City of Windhoek, 500 sanitizer bottles to the Robert Mugabe Clinic, food parcels (23 000kg) worth N$300 000 distributed to vulnerable communities around Windhoek and N$50 000 to the MTC Knockout Project against homelessness.
