Defeating winter for the needy
12 July 2018 | Economics
On 10 July MTC donated N$200 000 to the Round Table Namibian Area (RTNAM), to support its Winter Knights project.
Winter Knights is a national project hosted by RTNAM. The project is aimed at raising funds in order to buy blankets and other items that will keep the marginalised and needy communities warmer during the cold winter nights.
Speaking at the handover ceremony, Johan Steenkamp, chairman of RTNAM, said they are thankful to MTC for their contribution to the project.
“During this time of the year, when winter is bearing down extremely on us, these funds will go a long way in bringing happy smiles to the faces of our beneficiaries,” he said.
According to MTC chief human capital and corporate affairs officer, Tim Ekandjo, the company’s kindness knows no bounds and in the past week it has been on active drive to re-cement its values and spread love within the community.
“Not so long ago we assisted the Shack Dwellers Federation of Namibia, with a donation of N$800 000 and today we are committing ourselves to support RTNAM with N$200 000. We view this as a necessary part of our make-up to support vulnerable communities and make a lasting impact. We are therefore proud to be associated with the RTNAM and the Winter Knights project,” he said.
