B2Gold allocates N$6 million for COVID-19 fight

B2Gold Namibia approved the allocation of N$6 million to COVID-19 amelioration efforts, which will be split between targeted government interventions and theDevelopment Workshop of Namibia (DW).

B2Gold said DW’s COVID-19 response initiatives are focused on hygiene, sanitation and food security projects in the informal residential areas of urban townships throughout the country and prior to the COVID-19 virus.

DW operates through the Namibia Chamber of Environment and mainly focused on establishing affordable semi-formal serviced land and housing around many urban centres in the country.

The Canadian gold major said it prides itself for being committed to make a lasting positive impact on an increasing number of humans and to the planet that hosts them.
