Kalahari Holdings donates to Covid centre

• By Confidente reporter

KALAHARI Holdings this week donated chairs and gazebos to the Robert Mugabe Covid-19 Centre.

Speaking at the handover ceremony that took place in Windhoek, Kalahari Holdings marketing manager Tuulikki Nelulu said the centre had approached the company seeking for assistance and management had accepted the request.

“The centre approached us some time ago with a need of office chairs and gazebos with an aim of fighting Covid-19. It was with no hesitation that we the management of Kalahari Holdings decided to accept this request and acquired office chairs and gazebos for the centre. The last two years have been challenging as we have been fighting this deadly disease. If Covid-19 has taught us anything it’s that we need to stop fighting one another and fight a common enemy,” she said.

She said the frontline workers who had sacrificed their lives as well as those of their families to save lives deserve recognition.

According to Nelulu, Kalahari Holdings is committed to ploughing back into the community allocating a budget every year for such purposes.

“We are a group that’s for the people, by the people and we believe that as a nation we can only achieve our goals if we work together for the benefit of all Namibians. Though this is relatively a small donation which is incomparable to your contribution to our nation for the past years, we hope it will make a difference,” she added.

Nelulu further urged fellow Namibians to always extend a helping hand when able to.

“My favourite quote is by John Bunyan who says ‘You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you,” she said.
