NAMPORT on Wednesday donated N$2 million worth of aid to the Walvis Bay community, through its social investment fund to help fight Covid-19.
The donation consists of a 20-foot container which was converted into ablution facilities for the Twaloloka settlement.
The facility replaces the mobile toilets which the harbour parastatal had donated at the beginning of the Covid-19 outbreak in March.
The new set-up boasts six toilets with hand washing basins.
The harbour town's municipality is providing water connectivity for this ablution facility.
The company also donated N$1million towards the supply and fitment of oxygen and other urgent medical requirements to the Covid-19 facilities at Walvis Bay and to the rest of Erongo.
Namport's acting CEO, Kavin Harry, said the donation is being made with the aim to join other stakeholders in alleviating the burden of this pandemic. Erongo has become the epicentre of the Covid-19 outbreak with most positive cases being recorded at Walvis Bay.
“This has placed pressure on the health fraternity and it is only with the cooperation of key role players such as Namport that we can address the need that is facing us,” said Erongo governor Neville Andre.
