On 7 February 2022 the FirstRand Namibia Foundation, Pupkewitz Foundation and Ohorongo Cement reaffirmed their commitment to support the Shack Dwellers Federation of Namibia at their annual sponsorship handover.
Rozina Jacobs, FNB Home Loans National Sales Manager, representing the FirstRand Namibia Foundation at the event, said the partners remain committed to this worthy cause, because government alone is not able to tackle the housing crisis our country is facing.
“The housing challenge in this country will not be rectified in the near future, but every step in the right direction and every house built will eventually lead to an end of the housing crises and a positive outcome of providing a roof over the head of as many Namibian families as possible”, she said.
Rudolf Coetzee, representing Ohorongo Cement said that they truly believed that the Shack Dweller’s Federation of Namibia and the Namibia Housing Action Group cemented themselves into solid organizations, relentless in their drive to provide community driven houses for low-income families. “We believe that, with combined resources, we can achieve more, and by partnering with FNB Namibia and the Pupkewitz Foundation we are doing exactly that – we make a difference where it is really needed. We herewith confirm our donation of cement to the value of N$ 500,000 for the 2022 financial year.”
