Windhoek, Namibia – The Germany embassy has decided to pitch in the fight against COVID-19 by distributing food packages in the areas of Gobabis, Witvlei and Okahandja.
The food packages are being distributed to the community members by the German Evangelical Lutheran Association of Okahandja-Gobabis (ELCIN – GELC) in cooperation with the Okahandja Community Forum.
“We are glad to be able to support the church and the Okahandja Community Forum in their efforts to serve those in need.
In times like these, it is particularly important to help each other in the spirit of humanity and christian charity,” said Ellen Gölz, Chargée d’Affaires a.i. of the German Embassy.
Although Namibia has relatively low COVID-19 confirmed cases at just under 60, the country is finding it hard to balance between COVID-19 and its economic well-being.
However, Namibia is slowly opening up its entire economy so as to try and mitigate the effects of COVID-19 but with its largest trading partner, South Africa still on a nationwide lockdown the road to economic recovery is a bit gloomy.
