Branch collection for shack dwellers almost double last year’s contribution

The Shack Dwellers Federation of Namibia received N$70,743 from the staff of the Standard Bank central region branch as part of their annual Christmas gift to the Buy-A-Brick initiative. The donation will enable the Federation to build three additional low cost houses.

Last year, the staff collection for Buy-A-Brick only managed to gather N$40,000.

The staff members presented their donation to Vetumbuavi Mungunda, Chief Executive of Standard Bank Namibia, showing their boss their passion about giving back to the community.
