CoW donates to the needy
The children-headed household organisation received donated goods that included beds, mattresses, school uniforms and food, with a combined value of N$14,000, the Zanele Mbeki Primary and Day-care Centre received a photocopy machine, worth N$34,000, the Katutura Central Kindergarten received playground equipment, blankets, pillows and mattresses, with a combined value of N$15, 500 and the Mamakhai Hangara OVC received paint, beds and plastic chairs, with a combined value of N$13,300. The donations were a result of a contractual obligation with Syntell Proprietary, a company that won the City tender on prepayment electricity vending.
His Worship Councillor Muesee Kazapua, Mayor, City of Windhoek (COW) said that the tender awarded to Syntell makes provision for a contribution to social projects as identified by the City. “We are joined by four representatives of social projects, Ms Karen Hishidimbwa, Children-headed household from Havana, Ms Veronica Avula, from the Zanele Mbeki Primary and Day- car Centre, Mr Mupaheruapi Veseevete from Katutura Central Kindergarten and Ms Paulina Hangara from Mamakhai Hangara Orphan and vulnerable Children Support Organisation (OVC),” he said.
His Worship added that they know that the goods donated will not address all the needs of the beneficiaries, but they are convinced that it will improve the living conditions of the vulnerable children under their care.”I therefore appeal to all good citizens, to join this noble initiative, as we strive to enhance the quality of life of all our people,” he concluded.
Ms Karen Hishidimbwa from the Children-headed household organisation thanked the City and emphasised the public to follow in their footsteps and help their communities.
