WINDHOEK, 25 JUN (NAMPA) – The Kuiseb fishing company on Wednesday donated soup worth N.dollars 982 980 to the Office of the Prime Minister here to distribute among drought-affected communities.
Acting administrator of Kuiseb Fishing Enterprises (Pty) Ltd, Harold Kaune said during the handing-over ceremony the soup is an excellent source of protein of which the base ingredient contains vital Omega-3 fatty acids.
He said the soup is easy to prepare and adapts to a variety of storage methods, hence it is not sensitive to heat, cold, moist, wind, etc.
Kaune said Kuiseb Fishing Enterprises, a horse-mackerel fishing rights holder, decided to join forces with the Minister of Fisheries and Marine Resources, Bernard Esau to respond to the call by President Hage Geingob for the nation to strive towards poverty eradication and to tackle inequalities.
He said their company remains committed to its social responsibility and trusts and hopes that their meagre and humble contribution will meet the profound goodwill of Government in feeding the needy in society.
Another donation of watermelons, Kalahari melons, beans, pumpkins and millet was made by Ndapandula Talinyange and her family.
The family grew the fresh produce on their resettled farm in the Omaheke Region.
Talinyange said their donation is towards Namibians who are affected by drought.
The Osave Mini Market in the Oshana Region also contributed N.dollars 50 000.
On her part, Deputy Prime Minister, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah said the donations will enable Government to continue providing support to drought-affected communities.
