Reptile Mineral Resources and Exploration (RMR) a wholly owned subsidiary of Deep Yellow Limited donated scholarships, educational tools and medical equipment worth N$191 000 to Erongo-based organisations.

RMR donated scholarships to Tugamena Amadhila and Lesley Gaseb that benefited from an intensive after-school education programme.
The scholarships to the two students are for the 2021/2022 school year at Mondesa Youth Opportunities (MYO). The donation is part of their continuing its ongoing support of for students from underprivileged schools in the Erongo region who show ability and promise.
RMR also donated learning materials and educational tools to the Women’s Community Project (WCP) at the DRC informal settlement in Swakopmund. WCP is led by Anja Rohwer, and includes a new school building and kindergarten which accommodates 100 children, a soup kitchen and a fruit and vegetable garden.

RMR also handed 10 oxygen generators designed and built by the Namibian company Better Earth Everyday to Swakopmund-based Ciske’s Task Force and the Walvis Bay-based Erongo Regional Corona Care Initiative.
The O²C Nam oxygen concentrators are made specifically for Namibian conditions, and produce 10 litres per minute of 94% concentrated oxygen and is built not only to support the local industry but also ensuring the availability of local maintenance and repairs.
RMR manager Katrin Kärner said at the handover-event that were recently held in Swakopmund, the company responded to the pledge by the Namibian government through the Namibian Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s (NCCI) Business Namibia Covid-19 Response Project.
Kärner said, “The reason why RMR is committed to support these communities in a sustainable and responsible way is that the company believes in creating long-term value for its stakeholders and communities in which it operates.”
