City supports needy
Hilya Arthur-Iyambo and Syntell (Pty) Ltd donated materials and goods to the City of Windhoek which the Mayor, Her Worship Agnes Kafula, handed out to various beneficiaries as part of the City of Windhoek’s corporate social responsibility and mayoral outreach programme.
Kafula said she is happy that Mrs Arthur-Iyambo recognised the rampant poverty back home and decided to collect goods from friends, neighbours and the surrounding communities in Canada for the benefit of needy communities in Namibia. Arthur-Iyambo brought with her numerous children’s toys, computer equipment, clothes, crutches, tents and books.
Donations were handed to Mrs Fabiola Thomas, a physically disabled representative of a family of eleven in Okuryangava, to Mrs Sonja Goagoses, a representative of an Orphan and Vulnerable Children (OVC) project in Dolam, to Mr Paul Sauerwein, principal of the Otjomuise Project School, and to Mrs Ebenecia Tjiveta from Onyose Trust. Syntell donated computer equipment, toys and learning materials with a combined value of N$15.239 to Okaye Kindergarten, a registered early-childhood centre that provides care to 72 less-fortunate children at Single Quarters in Katutura. They also donated school uniforms worth N$29.714 to Children Life Change Centre from Okahandja Park, Katutura. Syntell won the City tender on prepayment-electricity vending and the tender award to Syntell makes provision for a contribution to social projects as identified by the City of Windhoek.
