Feeding Gobabis with fish

31 October 2019 | Disasters

Osona Fishing Company donated food items worth N$101 000 to 125 needy households in Gobabis in the Omaheke Region this week.
The donation includes 250 trays of canned fish, 250 bottles of cooking oil and maize meal, which were divided amongst the households of 602 people in total. Each family received a tray of canned fish of 12 cans, a bottle of cooking oil and a 10 kilogramme bag of maize meal. The families do not benefit from any other government programmes such as the drought relief programme and Food Bank, and are in dire need.
Speaking at the handover, Omaheke Governor Festus Ueitele applauded Osona Fishing Company for the gesture and urged the beneficiaries to take ownership of what they have received and use it for the intended purposes.
On her part, Osona Fishing Company board deputy chairperson Corjaneil Christovao said the company is aware of the misery in many communities as a result of the ongoing drought which has plagued the country for the past years. “We hope that this donation will contribute in some small measures to government’s drought relief efforts, as much as it is indicative of our rooted drive towards corporate and social responsibility.”
A total of 125 units of the items were distributed in Gobabis and the remaining will be distributed to selected needy households in the Aminuis Constituency in November. – Nampa
