Bank Windhoek Lifestyle Branch manager Johan Berry recently handed over N$5 000 to Khomas Medical Centre Auas Hills.

Speaking at the handover, Berry said Bank Windhoek was committed to improving the well-being of the elderly, especially those with families in other countries during this difficult time.

“The world as we know it has changed and we are still to find and adjust to the ‘new normal’, but in getting there we all have to work together and pull our efforts in the same direction if we are to win this fight,” Berry said.

He said Bank Windhoek was committed to supporting the efforts of different stakeholders in the country and doing its part to assist the elderly. “As a corporate predominantly operating on this side of town, this donation makes sense as there is a huge need for caring for the elderly.”

He further said that Bank Windhoek Lifestyle was just starting and that they would look for further projects to assist the elderly community in Auas Hills and the country as a whole.

Speaking at the same event, Khomas Medical Centre managing partner Dr Christo Burger said: “Bank Windhoek should not see this as a small donation because for family members being in frail care, any small donation to make their rooms as homely as possible makes a big difference in their lives and we will use this donation to benefit our patients.

“The donation could not have come at a more appropriate time than now, as we face unprecedented times of fighting the global outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic that has driven our residents to uncertain livelihoods.”

Burger thanked Bank Windhoek for its support towards the upgrading of the frail-care facility at Khomas Medical Centre Auas Hills, saying the outreach was a sign of Bank Windhoek’s commitment to a shared agenda on corporate social responsibility and community solidarity.

Besides the contribution received from Bank Windhoek for the upgrading of the frail-care facility, Khomas Medical Centre also ensures that Namibians have access to its health facilities through its Khomas Loyalty Fund.

The Khomas Loyalty Fund is a short-term medical insurance, which for N$230 per month gives a main member and four dependents access to 15 GP consultations per year, N$150 for acute medication per script, and N$1 500 for selective blood tests per year, in Windhoek, Swakopmund, Tsumeb and Ruacana.

To curtail the spread of the pandemic and in line with national guidelines, Khomas Medical Centre has put in place safety and health measures at all its branches throughout the country.

All its employees have been equipped with masks, sanitisers and social distancing measures to protect them against the pandemic.
