China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) Rössing Uranium donated N$200 000 to the ministry of health and social services on Friday to support initiatives by government to combat the Covid-19 pandemic locally.

Speaking at the handover, CNNC Rössing Uranium’s managing director, Johan Coetzee, said that it is crucial to ensure that the spread of the virus is stopped.

“We trust that the N$200 000 donation will strengthen government’s actions against the coronavirus. CNNC Rössing Uranium is doing all we can to stop the spread of the virus by way of an emergency response plan with various actions to prevent the spread of the virus among our employees and contractors,” Coetzee said.

CNNC Rössing Uranium recently introduced a Covid-19 emergency response plan (ERP) that follows a four-phased approach towards managing the outbreak.

The ERP adapts to changing circumstances.

In a statement read on his behalf by incident manager Maria Kavezembi, Ben Nangombe, the executive director of ministry of health and social services’ (MHSS) thanked Rössing Uranium for their immeasurable support in the fight against Covid-19 in Namibia. He also called upon all stakeholders in the sectors of health and social welfare services to also do so.

“N$200 000 is a lot of money and every cent of this donation will be accounted for and spent on this emergency,” said Nangombe.
