At the handover ceremony (from left to right): Jacques Steyn (vice president of SANDVIK Mining Systems Africa), Daniel Muhuura (Mayor of Arandis), Cleophas Mutjavikua (Governor of the Erongo region), Petrina Haingura (Deputy Minister of Health and Social Services), Gabriela Teleman (MD of St Gabriel Community Ambulance Trust), Paul Day (Mine Manager Areva Namibia) and Alain L’Hour (MD Areva Namibia).
Areva Namibia and SANDVIK Mining Systems Africa recently co-sponsored an ambulance called the “Desert Rose” to the Arandis community. Arandis, a town with a population of about 5100, has never had a local emergency response vehicle before. The ambulance was entrusted to St Gabriel’s Community Ambulance which operates it. The emergency vehicle is stationed at the Namibian Institute of Mining and Technology (NIMT) in Arandis.
With the hand-over of the Desert Rose, Areva Namibia commits itself towards improving the quality of life of the dormitory town.
