Following its recent donation of 53 tents towards the COVID-19 homeless shelter initiative by the Ministry of Health & Social Services (MoHSS), Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL) – a subsidiary of the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group – followed up with further support of this project, with a beverage donation valued at close to N$100 000.
NBL Managing Director, Marco Wenk handed over 340 cases of Fruitree juice to the MoHSS for the close to 500 homeless people currently sheltered by the project. Wenk: “We are extremely passionate about this initiative by government, and applaud them for this. Our support comes from a place of care and passion for our country and her people, and speaks directly to our vision of being a catalyst for positive change, and our purpose of ‘Creating a future, Enhancing life’. As far as we can, we will continue to support government’s efforts during the war on COVID-19.”
Daily meals are provided to those sheltered by the project, with support from local churches and other organizations. MoHSS spokesperson on behalf of the COVID-19 homeless shelter initiative, Helen Mouton: “This donation adds so much spark to the day of the beneficiaries of this shelter project. The role NBL has played during this time and for this initiative is highly appreciated! “
According to Wenk, NBL, in collaboration with Pick n Pay (PnP) Namibia – also a subsidiary of the O&L Group, provided refreshments in the form of 130 cases of its McKane ranges to roadblock officers across the central region of the country.
