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 Authority’s commitment to joining hands with the government in ensuring that COVID-19 related patients receive their treatment in the most comfortable setting as possible.
The beds which were received by the Chief Administration Officer, Ms Hileni Kanime on behalf of the Ministry of Health and Social Services will be used at the COVID-19 Isolation facility at the Walvis Bay State Hospital.
The presence of Namport as an entity has been felt through the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic as the company has without fail continued its unwavering financial support towards government’s efforts in curbing the spread of the disease.
Since the outbreak of the pandemic earlier this year in March, Namport has invested more than N$1, 5 million in the health, safety fraternity and at the temporary truck port.
