Ohorongo Otavi Community Trust in collaboration with Support Ulm e.V and the Ministry of Health and Social Services, today, agreed to extend the Technical Development Cooperation Agreement between the two partners for another 5 years. This will be the second extension of the agreement since its origin in 2010 /2011.

Extending this agreement allows for the continuance of the supply of medical equipment, in kind and in cash, as prioritized by the Ministry of Health and Social Services, to assist in improving the public health sector of Namibia.

Support e.V is a non-profit organization based in the German town Ulm, established by a group of medical doctors under the leadership of Professor Doctor Heinz Maier, with the aim to support medical projects throughout the world. Through the establishment of Ohorongo Cement, this group directed its support to Namibia who has been enjoying the benefit of its assistance.

The extension of the agreement comes amidst the potential change in shareholding in Ohorongo Cement, but will not be affected by these changes. “Regardless of the possible change in shareholding, Ohorongo, in collaboration with Support e.V, will continue its Corporate Social Investment in the country”, said Mr. Hans-Wilhelm Schütte, Managing Director of Ohorongo Cement.

To date the total donations of medical equipment and services to the ministry amounts to more than N$ 20 Million, with another shipment expected to arrive at the Walvisbay port in middle October this year. This containerized shipment, will be handed over to the ministry for distribution to health care facilities throughout the country.

The Deputy Minister of Health and Social Service, Hon. Julieta Kavetuna, expressed the importance of the extension of this agreement, as all regions have not yet benefited from the medical equipment and support received. Emphasis will be placed on reaching these regions.

Support e.V, are continuously generating and using platforms to raise funds to support and uplift the health sector in Namibia.
