This week FNB Namibia handed their first support to the SYNERGOS Institute for the set-up and running of mobile clinics. Speaking at the ceremony, Chairperson of the FNB Foundation, Jane Katjivivi, expressed her delight saying “These clinics will be deployed in un-served areas where health services are compressed and access to such services is limited. I must say that I have been involved in officiating over a number of projects of the FNB Foundation over the years, but I am especially pleased to be able to assist with this noble cause.”
She pointed out that FNB Namibia has an aggressive approach to social responsibility and allocates 1% of the total post-tax profits of the FNB Group to the Foundation for corporate social investment. “There is a deliberate synergy between the areas of focus of the FNB Foundation and the objectives of the government’s Vision 2030. Indeed, the foundation aims to help the government achieve the objectives set out in Vision 2030. The betterment of all Namibians is an integral part of this vision. The input and contribution of all sectors of society are needed to make this vision a reality, and that is why the FNB Foundation will welcome institutions such as SYNERGOS with open arms asking the question: How can we help you?,” she said.
Deputy Minister of Health and Social Services, Hon Katrina Haingura expressed her gratitude and elaborated that the government will not be able to achieve the millennium development goals unless organisations like the SYNERGOS Institute and the FNB Foundation strengthen their hands.
The minister said the mobile clinics will help to improve maternal and child health in rural areas.
The FNB Foundation has committed N$160,000 per year for the next three years totalling N$480,000.
