In response to the recent outbreak of Hepatitis E, Wernhil Park Shopping Centre contributed to hygiene care through the donation of bucket tap containers, specifically for hand-washing and water consumption purposes to each class of the Dr. Abraham Iyambo Primary School, and the Monte Christo Primary Project School at the Havana resettlement area in Katutura, Windhoek.

Wernhill Park Shopping Centre is a property managed by Broll Namibia - a subsidiary of the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group.

Managing Director of Broll Namibia, Marco Wenk who handed over the donation to the principals of the two schools in accompaniment of the Khomas Director of Education, Arts & Culture, Gerard Vries who received the donation on behalf of government, stressed the need for corporate Namibia to take government’s hand in contributing to safe and healthy learning environments for Namibian learners.

Vries emphasized the passionate and dedicated support by the O&L Group at large, and how this support has contributed significantly to the upliftment and advancement of these project schools. Vries: “Thank you to the O&L Group for the invaluable support you have shown to these two schools over the past years. Your support will go a long a way in both the future of these establishments as well as in the lives of our learners going forward. A special thank you also to Wernhil Park for this very thoughtful donation. This is the type of response we need from the public and corporate for the future of our country,” he said.

The donation include 30 bucket tap containers for Dr. Abraham Iyambo Primary School and 20 for Monte Christo Primary Project School. Each school also received barrels of soap.
