Dairies donates more than 3000 litres of milk to school children
In celebration of Milk Month that is commemorated annually during the month of June, Namibia Dairies on Friday handed over milk supply to the Dr. Abraham Iyambo Primary School and the Monte Christo Project Primary School in the Havana resettlement area.
The Dr. Abraham Iyambo Primary School received 376 cases of milk which totals 2256 litres of milk, while the Monte Christo Project Primary School received 144 cases of milk which amounts to 864 litres of milk.
This annual gesture is part of Namibia Dairies’ contribution to the schools that have received significant support in growth and development from the O&L Group over the past years.
Handing over the donation was the Managing Director of Namibia Dairies, Gunther Ling who stressed on the importance of supporting the country’s future generations, especially children.
“Children and education are key focus areas in the O&L Corporate Social Investment (CSI) agenda, hence our decision a few years ago to adopt these two project schools as part of the O&L support beneficiaries,” Ling added.
“We have over the years helped with the development of classrooms and proper learning environments, as well as contributed to maintaining the health of the children, amongst others. Namibia Dairies is once again proud to contribute to their health and development of their bodies and will continue to be a part of the growth of these precious Namibian children, for as long as we can,” he added.
