National Disaster fund gets N$60 million from Namibia Post and Telecommunication Holdings
The Namibia Post and Telecommunication Holdings (NPTH), on Thursday donated N$60 million to the government with the aim of assisting the effective implementation of the Drought Relief Programme, in order for the Government to achieve its intended objectives.
NPTH Board of Directors Chairperson Lena Kangandjela at a handover ceremony said the funds will be channelled to the National Disaster fund under the custody of the Office of the Prime Minister.
Further, the donation forms part of NPTH’s social responsibility during these drought-stricken times, she added.
Kangandjela further encouraged other corporate entities and private sectors as well as the Namibian nation to meet the government halfway in its efforts to ensure that the livelihoods of the affected communities is maintained and to heed to the call of the President.
“This donation aims to strengthen the Namibian government by restoring the faith and trust that the people have in their government to provide during the hard times,” she added.
