17 October 2020 | Health

The Namibian Ports Authority through its Social Investment Fund recently donated twenty-five (25) single beds to the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MOHSS) in Walvis Bay.

The donation is in direct response to the commitment from the port authority to join hands with the government in ensuring that Covid-19 related patients receive their treatment in the most comfortable setting as possible. Said Justina Evelinus Namport acting executive for commercial services.

The beds which were received by the chief administration officer, Hileni Kanime on behalf of the ministry of health and social services (MOHSS) will be used at the Covid-19 Isolation facility at the Walvis Bay State Hospital.

“Namport has since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic without fail continued its unwavering financial support towards government’s efforts in curbing the spread of the disease by investing more than N$1, 5 million in the health, safety fraternity and at the temporary truck port, ” concluded Evelinus.
