Supporting for farmer’s wives
25 November 2019 | Disasters
Basic necessities such as cooking oil, bathing soap, tea and coffee and body lotions are some of the essentials in the packages.
The Namibia Drought Relief Project aims to assist drought-stricken farmers. The project’s chair, Henriëtte le Grange who received the packages on behalf of the beneficiaries, said: “Some of the women no longer go shopping simply because there is no money. Even something like lip balm is a luxury to them at the moment. Thank you to Bank Windhoek’s VAF Branch for approaching us on how they could assist. This means so much to us and we assure you that the women who will receive these packages, will appreciate it very much.”
Bank Windhoek’s VAF branch manager, Sandra Blaauw, said that the response she received when she asked her team to assist was overwhelming. “Some of our customers and friends also joined and made a contribution to the initiative. As a branch we see this as additional support to the bank’s overall corporate social responsibility drive of being connectors of positive change.”
The packages will be delivered to beneficiaries during the festive season.
