The City of Windhoek held its annual Community donation project which was themed ‘Shoe Box Project’. Every year, the office of the mayor donates gifts and money for the less fortunate. The project is in its fifth year running. This year the COW adopted the Shoe Box Project concept as the gifts were donated in shoe box size packages.

These gifts and funds are donated by a collective of companies and individuals. Meatco donated its new branded MEATMA products to the charity event. Meatco’s Thoko Mdlalose said that MEATMA is proud to be part of the sponsorship as it wmeans ploughing back to the community. She added that MEATMA is an affordable complete range of quality meat products produced locally.
The aim of this partnership is to market MEATMA products and to build the brand, as its new Meatco product. She said that they created a platform for communities in which they operate in, to bring forward their concerns and to benefit from their operations. “More specifically, MEATMA’s sponsorship aims to be available to those members in our community that need it most.”
