For the past four months, Pick n Pay Namibia has sent its chief, Henry Feris on a country-wide tour of goodwill to help rural communities and schools with donations and vouchers for groceries. During June, the retailer’s focus shifted west when Feris visited community projects in Swakopmund and Walvis Bay.
During the first part of the roadshow, Pick n Pay Namibia supported fifteen schools in Okahandja; Katima Mulilo, Rundu and several northern towns including Oshikango, with a variety of items from food to stationery, benefitting more than 2000 learners. “Recently we also stopped at the Luthen Old Age Home and the Omdel Soup Kitchen in Swakopmund as well as the Walvis Bay Kids Haven.  All these entities received food vouchers of N$11,000 from Pick n Pay” said Feris.

For Kids Haven in Walvis Bay, Pick n Pay partnered with Wellco Trucks and Trailer who also contributed food vouchers to the value of N$3,000.
Feris said: “We trust that our gesture will contribute to healthy and happy Namibians with full tummies during the winter season. Together with great partners all over Namibia we can ensure that we are creating a future, enhancing life; especially for the most vulnerable in society.”
