As Part of Telecom Namibia’s on going 20th Anniversary Birthday Celebrations, over 300 Senior Citizens were treated to music, dance, lunch and a fully stocked food parcel during the Otavi Senior Citizens Party, held on the 15th of March 2013 at the Otavi Town Hall.
“Today we are taking care of our senior citizens in the knowledge that the responsibility of looking after them is not only the responsibility of Government, but of all the citizens, including Telecom Namibia,” said Managing Director of Telecom Namibia Mr Frans Ndoroma.
Addressing the senior citizens at this joyous occasion he assured the residents that, “there is a gift for each and every senior citizen here today to take home a bag of food goodies, the contents of which had been generously donated by Telecom Namibia and our partners – Africa Online, Nedbank Namibia, Standard Bank Namibia, Nashua and other private individuals.
These partner companies contributed N$15,050 during the Telecom Namibia Golf Charity Day held last year.
“I would therefore like to express our deep gratitude to all our partners for their contribution and support towards helping the needy in our society, he added
“This party might be small and our donation today may be humble, but it is coming from the bottom of our hearts. On a bigger picture, it is also a token of acknowledging the immense role played by many of you in the development of telecommunications in our country,”
“As a company, it is part of our mandate to give back to society through our Corporate Social Responsibility programmes. We are committed to fulfill this social contract to remain true to our statutory obligation as a true corporate citizen of this country.
“Today we are taking care of our senior citizens in the knowledge that the responsibility of looking after them is not only the responsibility of Government, but of all the citizens, including Telecom Namibia,” he concluded.
