Ohorongo Otavi Community Trust (OOCT) in collaboration with Support e.V. in Ulm, Germany, made a pledge by donating an ambulance during the recent Otavi Investment Expo & Festival Gala Dinner.

The Gala Dinner took place on Saturday, 13 April in Otjiwarongo and was attended by His Excellency, Dr Sam Nujoma (founding President), the Mayor of Otavi, the Mayor of Otjiwarongo, various councilors and dignitaries.

As part of Ohorongo Cement (PTY) Ltd.’s commitment to develop the Otavi community, the company, in co-operation with the OOCT, focuses on the needs of the local community within the Otjozondjupa region, mainly focusing on Infrastructure, Education and Health Care.

Because Ohorongo cares about people, the company decided to assist in an identified need of the Otavi community in the handling of casualties, hence the donation of a brand-new ambulance to the value of N$ 348 000-00 to the Otavi Town Council, in aid for the Otavi Health Clinic.

The ambulance was handed over to Mr Markus Damaseb, the Mayor of Otavi, who happily received the vehicle from Mr Hans-Wilhelm Schütte, Managing Director of Ohorongo Cement.

“I trust that this ambulance will be put to good use and that it will assist in saving lives by transporting injured Namibians to the nearest hospital to get proper medical care. After all, a healthy community equals a healthy economy,” said Schütte

OOCT & E.v. Support supported various projects in the Otjozondjupa region in the past, like the donation of sun creams & setting up of an Albino corner, donations of hospital & specialized medical equipment, and more recently, the donation of wheelchairs & walking frames to the Tsumeb Private Hospital.

More than N$ 2.4 million has already been donated to the Otjozondjupa region, the Otavi town, Oshikoto and Tsumeb district via the OOCT.
