The Office of Governor in the Erongo region recently donated immune boosters which include Zinplex and other vitamins worth N$13 000, to the DRC Clinic.

Residents of the informal settlement will benefit from the donated items.

“My office received donations from good Samaritans. They are individuals who also thought that they can help babies, people who are less privileged and the elderly while they wait to be vaccinated,” governor Neville Andre said.

He added that there is a need for other interventions that can minimize the threat of Covid-19.

Swakopmund mayor Louisa Kativa, on behalf of the Municipality, expressed her appreciation for the donation.

She thanked the governor and also the ‘good Samaritans’ for donating the immune boosters.

“The big challenge that we have is the lack of access to immune boosters for the community. The community still needs to adhere to Covid-19 preventative measures and protocols,” urged the mayor.

Kativa said that she has been working at the DRC Clinic for two years and “I have noticed that most of the residents do not adhere to protocols. Residents move around without masks. Covid-19 is controllable. We just need to wear our masks, wash our hands and keep a social distance,” she said.

The chairperson of the Erongo regional council (ERC), Ciske Howard, challenged the residents to adopt a healthy lifestyle along with taking immune boosters.

“This is a very good thing for our community, especially in times like these. We also need to exercise and make sure that our immune systems is boosted.”

She called on the business fraternity as well as individuals to make more donations in the battle against the pandemic.
