Bank Windhoek’s Otjiwarongo Branch assists the community

On Friday, 8 May 2020, Bank Windhoek’s Otjiwarongo Branch, in partnership with the town’s Municipality, handed over around 160 essential food parcels to the Otjiwarongo Multipurpose Help Centre. The Centre distributed the donations to the town's less fortunate, especially the elderly and street children who are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Established in 2003, the Otjiwarongo Multipurpose Help Centre is a non-profit organisation that tends to the needs of the less fortunate. The Centre offers meals to the homeless, elderly, street children, and people without a means of catering to the needs of their families. “On behalf of Bank Windhoek, we feel privileged and humbled to have been able to give back to the community in this way. We understand that the community’s needs are greater during this time, and we believe that any assistance can offer some hope,” said Bank Windhoek’s Otjiwarongo Branch Manager, Bets Blaauw.

The Otjiwarongo Municipality’s Chief Executive Officer, Moses Matyayi and the town's Mayor, Bennes Haimbondi were also present during the handover, which had social distancing measures and the wearing of masks as compulsory during the occasion.

Aimed at improving community life, the Otjiwarongo Multipurpose Help Centre also offers various programmes, such as home-based care, counselling and assisting people living with HIV/Aids, among others.
