Dundee drought relief
Supporting the government to mitigate the effects of the drought, Dundee Precious Metals Tsumeb donated N$100,000 to the National Emergency Disaster Fund recently. The smelter operator said this is to bolster the ongoing drought relief effort coordinated by the Office of the Prime Minister. In handing over the cheque, Dundee Precious Metals Manager for Stakeholder and Administrative Affairs, Isai Nekundi noted that the majority of the Dundee Precious workforce has families and relatives living in drought-stricken areas. “We fully understand the hardship and suffering they are experiencing along with tens of thousands more of our compatriots,” Nekundi said, expressing the hope that the funds can be used to purchase food and other priority items for the men, women and children hit hardest by the unprecedented disaster.
