Erongo Marine Spreads Christmas Cheer Among Elders

Erongo Marine Enterprises spread Christmas cheer among close to 600 elders in the Hardap, Otjozundjupa and Kunene regions with food parcels handed out in person by the company’s Managing Director, Dr Martha Uumati. In addition, the company donated canned fish to the value of N$100,000 to the offices of the Governors of the Hardap and Otjozundjupa regions.

The food hampers contained amongst others canned fish, flour, maize meal, sugar, tea and body lotion. The canned fish donation will be used for various food security projects in the respective regions as deemed appropriate by the Governors.
“During this time of the year it is our turn to give back to those less fortunate in our country. Nothing makes me happier to see so many smiles on the faces of our elderly,” Dr Uumati said. She added that it is important not to forget the contribution the elderly have made in paving the way for our personal successes and our country’s freedom.
“I am privileged to be able to share this day with the elderly, not only to give back, but also to be humbled by our elderly and pay tribute to the road they have paved for us. I believe that to make an elderly person happy is the noblest act a young person can ever do,” Dr Uumati said.
Erongo Marine Enterprises is one of the leading horse mackerel fishing companies in Namibia. The donations were made possible through Erongo Marine’s corporate social development trust, the Arechanab Community Trust. The events in the Hardap and Otjozundjupa regions were coordinated through Hon Isme Isaacs and Hon Otto Ipinge, governors of the respective regions. In Khorixas the food hamper donations formed part of the Welwitchia Community Festival organised by the Khorixas Town Council and community members.
