Ray of light for Tsumeb elderly
Two teams of employees provided foot scrubs and pedicures, distributed food hampers and toiletry gift bags, and spent quality time with 40 residents of Nomtsoub Old Age Home and Maroela Park Retirement Home throughout the Saturday morning of last weekend.
The visits were capped by a light lunch for the seniors, courtesy of Dundee. Dundee Precious Metals Tsumeb also donated a much-needed six-burner gas stove to the Nomtsoub facility. The complex is home to 27 elderly persons hailing from Tsumeb and a host of other communities around Namibia.
“Since Dundee is part of the community, we wanted to reach out to that segment that is often pushed to the margins, namely the elderly,” said Public Relations Officer Elizabeth Mutota, who was in charge of organising the visits. She was helped by her colleagues Charmel Handura, Priska Kahuku, Silas Shalauda, Mathilda Matheus and Florance Williams.
