28 April 2020 | Art and Entertainment
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the lives of Namibians have been impacted and many have found themselves homebound.
All broadcasters have been classified as essential services, and, putting its customers' needs at the heart of everything it does, MultiChoice Namibia (MCN) has reinforced its commitment to local communities by providing financial support.
Aimed at their 130 accredited installers and maintenance staff countrywide, the company has availed N$300 000 "to make their lives a little easier", a statement read.
"We understand that social distancing, school closures and national lockdowns mean spending a lot more time in your home with your family, therefore we have implemented sanitary processes, as recommended by the World Health Organisation, to help our installers step up their hand, respiratory and personal hygiene. This includes issuing installers with masks and other items in order to ensure customers are also safe."
Roger Gertze, managing director of MCN, said, in line with the national guidelines on keeping essential services in operation, MCN installers will continue performing installations.
“These extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures, so we have adopted new ways of working to keep our people safe and to keep our service to our customers on track.
“When it comes to our installers, this means doing our part to reduce the risk of the potential spread of infection,” Gertze said.
