Dundee Precious Metals Tsumeb reaffirmed its support to the Tsumeb community by improving the preparedness levels of the Tsumeb District hospital should the COVID-19 virus be detected in Tsumeb. The support to the hospital amounts to N$ 5 million.
The donation will aid with the upgrading of the existing isolation wards at the hospital, including other related services. The Company is also providing support towards the awareness campaign of the Ministry of Health and Social Services by printing additional communication material about COVID-19 and help in the distribution of the materials.
Dundee is committed to safeguarding the health of its workforce and local communities, managing supply chains and addressing the risks posed by the pandemic. “We are monitoring the situation closely and our first priority is ensuring the health and well-being of our workforce and the community in which we operate,” said Zebra Kasete, Dundee Precious Metals Tsumeb Vice President and Managing Director.
According to Kasete, the Company has been following the national safety instructions and proactively introduced protocols to protect our employees. The Company wants to continue to play a role in helping individuals and communities emerge stronger. Kasete underscored the importance of teamwork and unity stating that, beating the pandemic will require full and active participation from everyone. “Failing to help vulnerable people, communities or countries during this pandemic will put many at risk and therefore it is everyone’s responsibility to contain the spread of the virus”, he said.
