Corporates join fight against drought – donate N$35 million to relief initiative

Nampower, Namdia and the Chamber of Mines of Namibia recently donated a joint amount of N$35 million to the government’s drought relief initiative.

Nampower and Namdia each contributed N$15 million while the Chamber of Mines made a N$5 million contribution.

This donation came as a result of the President’s call for Offices, Ministries and government agencies to make provision of necessary drought relief assistance to drought affected communities.

The President, HE Dr Hage Geingob declared the current drought as a state of emergency in May and the Mines and Energy Minister, Hon Tom Alweendo extended the call to mines and energy stakeholders to make donations to the initiative.
