Etunda Farm Clinic, Otjozondjupa Region. Ohorongo Otavi Community Trust (OOCT), in collaboration with Support Ulm e.V., a non-profit organization based in the German town Ulm, furnished Etunda Farm Clinic with locally procured medical equipment to the value of N$600 000.

The donation is the result of a commitment initially made in 2014 by Ohorongo Cement to the Sam Nujoma Foundation, when they approached the company for assistance to construct a Clinic and a Primary School on a portion of land on the Founding Father’s farm, which he specifically donated for this purpose.

Hans-Wilhelm Schütte, Managing Director of Ohorongo Cement, witnessed the official hand-over of the clinic and medical equipment to the Ministry of Health and Social Services by His Excellency, the Founding President, Dr. Sam Nujoma on Saturday (13 May 2017).

“In order to ensure money remains in the country, the medical equipment was procured locally and will be installed according to the directive from the Ministry of Health & Social Services. Local suppliers are important for servicing of equipment and the provision of consumables. However, without the input and fundraisering by Support e.V. Ulm, this donation would not have been possible,” said Schütte.

Genmed the local supplier, will provide training on the equipment once the Etunda Clinic staff has been appointed and are present.

Initially, Ohorongo Cement also donated 34 tons of cement towards the construction of the Etunda Clinic.

The project was further supported by Ohorongo committing to another load of 36 tons of cement towards the construction of a hostel for the Etunda Primary School, as announced by the M.D. on Saturday. “Foundations are so important, and we are hoping that you will utilize the donated cement towards constructing the foundations of hostel, leaving a lasting legacy,” said Schütte.

Many others also pledged their support towards the project at the event.

“We are supporting this project to assist our Government’s policy initiatives of Vision 2030, the Growth at Home strategy of Ministry of Trade and Industry, and the Harambee Prosperity Plan, which is aimed at ensuring that Namibia becomes and industrialized nation. You have our assurance, that Ohorongo Cement and OOCT will continue to direct its efforts to complement that of the Namibian Government, as far as possible,” Schütte added.

The medical equipment donation is a result of a Technical Co-operation Agreement between Support Ulm e.V, OOCT and the Ministry of Health and Social Services, to deliver medical equipment as prioritized by the Ministry, to ensure excellent medical care in public health facilities and the exchange of medical professionals.
