Support Ulm e.V., a non-profit organization based in Ulm, Germany, under the management and guidance of Prof. Dr. Heinz Maier, donated medical equipment worth more than N$ 1.8 million to the Ministry of Health and Social Services. The donation was handed over by Mr. Rudolf Coetzee, General Administration Manager of Ohorongo Cement, to the Deputy Minister of Health and Social Services, Hon. Dr. Esther Muinjangue, on 24 June 2022. The donation includes 59 hospital beds and mattresses, 20 bedside tables, an operating table and various other items. Support Ulm e.V. was established by a group of medical doctors who made it their aim to support medical projects throughout the world. They support various projects by means of financial and humanitarian means as well as through donations. As a result of a Technical Corporation Agreement between Support Ulm e.V., the Ohorongo Otavi Community Trust and the Ministry of Health and Social Services, they deliver medical equipment as prioritised by the ministry to complement the existing medical facilities and ensure excellent medical care in public health facilities.

“I am happy to confirm that, since the establishment of the partnership in 2009, we have spent over N$ 71.8 million supporting a whole number of social projects, and out of this, thanks to Support Ulm e.V., more than N$ 59.2 million was on medical supplies and equipment. This includes today’s donation” said Coetzee. Hon. Dr. Esther Muinjangue expressed her profound gratitude on behalf of the Government of the Republic of Namibia, Ministry of Health and Social Services and the people of Namibia, to Support ULM e.V. for these medical supplies worth one comma eight Namibian dollars. The continuous support of medical supplies comes at a very crucial time when the entire world is experiencing economic hardship and hence the global support is highly appreciated in the spirit of solidarity as to overcome the economic adversity and equally defeat effects of Covid – 19 pandemic.

“Health care service delivery should be a global collective effort, hence the support from the people of Republic of Germany, through Support ULM e.V and Ohorongo Cement Pty Ltd, is a good testimony of international collective solidarity. Thank you for making a difference through your compassion and generosity” she said. This Private Public Partnership in the public health sector serves to narrow the gap caused by resource constraints as well as improve access to quality health services. The donation, especially the beds, is aimed at providing further relief to the Namibian healthcare system. Mr. Jeremiah Nghipundjwa, Deputy Executive Director of MOHSS and Mr. Johannes !Gaeseb, Director of Tertiary Health and Clinical Support Services also attended the event.
