Daring to care

26 November 2019 | Disasters

In response to government’s state of emergency declaration on the current drought and with no relief for farmers in the short term, Capricorn Group and Capricorn Asset Management followed in the footsteps of the group’s flagship brand, Bank Windhoek, by making a contribution of N$200 000 to the Dare to Care Drought Relief Fund.
This donation which was announced on 25 November, has made it possible for the Dare to Care Drought Relief Fund to reach and exceed their N$10 million target in assisting farmers during this unprecedented period of drought.
At the handover, Capricorn Group’s Marlize Horn said that as a Namibian financial services group, “We must assist Namibians affected by the adverse conditions brought on by the drought. With our humble contribution, we hope to assist the farming community in these challenging times.”
She called on the Namibian business community and individuals to assist wherever they can to mitigate the effects of the drought.
To date, the group, through the efforts of its subsidiaries, has been instrumental in assisting the Dare to Care Fund to create awareness by providing in-kind assistance through specialised skills.
Namibia Agricultural Union’s (NAU) Executive Manager, Roelie Venter, who is also a representative of the Dare to Care Fund, said, “The Dare to Care Fund would like to thank Capricorn Group for its contribution, which now elevated us to the N$10 million mark. We appreciate the help from our business community tremendously since it makes our goal to ensure a sustainable future for our farmers achievable.”
