Old Mutual completes food parcels deliveries to communities in all 14 regions

Old Mutual recently delivered food parcels in the Omaheke and Kavango West regions benefiting a total of 380 households valued N$68,948 and N$59,770, respectively.

The offices of the Governors of Omaheke and Kavango West regions in conjunction with their respective Regional Councils have identified needy individuals in specific constituencies of the regions to benefit from Old Mutual donation of the basic food items.

Furthermore, at the Kavango West event a remarkable equally important special handover was extended to the San community living in the Mukekete village in the Mphungu constituency. This support of blankets and food consignment to the value of N$50,000 will benefit 60 households of the marginalised San community.

This initiative marked Old Mutual’s final delivery in all 14 regions of the country, as the Kavango West and Omaheke were the last two regions to receive the food parcels as part of its commitment of N$5 million towards COVID-19 prevention efforts. The project has supported 3,057 individuals all over the country.

Of the N$5 million, N$1 million was set aside for food supplies to benefit affected vulnerable individuals and communities across all the 14 regions of the country.
