The learners of Walvis Bay Primary School recently donated lunch packs, with drinks and energy bars to the health workers at the Walvis Bay State Hospital as a small token of appreciation for their hard work and ongoing sacrifice.

The character traits health workers possess is responsibility, as these workers take the responsibility when many others have not and therefore, they are the health heroes of the nation. The learners thanked the health workers for that.
The Director of Walvis Bay Primary School, Charl Theron, said as part of the monthly theme the school felt it the right thing to do to donate the lunch packs to theses frontline workers at the Walvis Bay State Hospital.
Theron said, “The theme for August was responsibility, and to close off the month we decided to look at how we can exercise our social responsibility. We then decided that frontline workers who are working tirelessly at vaccination and tes-ting sites, needed to be shown the appreciation we felt. This a small gesture. We hope it will motivate other institutions to also get onboard to ensure our frontline workers are well taken care off. To our frontline workers, as a school, we are with you”.
The Acting Senior Medical Officer at the Walvis Bay State Hospital, Dr Augustu Gawab, said the school is sending a message to other entities to support government.
Dr Gawab said, “The donated packs will be distributed to hospital staff members stationed at vaccination and testing sites. We are thankful for this beautiful gesture. Our staff sacrifices their time to ensure that the community is taken care off”, Dr Gawab said.
