Employees supporting communities through the crisis
Date Posted: 18 May 2020Debmarine Namibia employees took an initiative to reach out to those less fortunate in our community by raising funds to purchase food parcels that feed hundreds of destitute families in Oranjemund, Okahandja and Windhoek informal settlements.
The employees raised more than N$40 000 which was matched by the Company. A total of N$ 80 000 was therefore committed to the initiative.
In the true spirit of Show We Care, last week, 70 families from Otjomuise, 8Ste Laan benefited from the drive through the Cheerful Givers, a youth charity organisation which was started to provide struggling families with food during the lockdown Windhoek’s informal settlements.
More family benefited from the drive-through CoFeed Namibia Project, which is a citizen-driven and the project aims at mobilizing food supplies and other necessities for distribution to the vulnerable within the communities.
More recipients will benefit in the coming week through CoFeed Namibia where by Debmarine Namibia Employees monetary contributions will be channeled towards buying bulk supplies.
The funds will be coordinated and paid directly to various participating retailers and CoFeed will distribute to the needy.
The employees were glad to be helping vulnerable members of communities during the pandemic.
