Kretuva Investments, a small company venturing in the printing business in Ongwediva Town since 2019, has donated food parcels to 56 struggling residents.
The donated food parcels are valued at N$4 000 and each contains amongst others, a 10kg bag of maize flour, a 10kg bag of macaroni, a bottle of cooking oil, and tinned fish.
This came to light when the company’s managing director, Elizabeth Ileka, and her husband, Kretus Ileka, handed over food parcels to the Mayor of Ongwediva, Taarah Shalyefu that were meant for 22 beneficiaries.
“As young entrepreneurs, we felt it is part of our social responsibility to plough back into the community in which we are operating,” stated the company’s MD handing over the food parcels.
She described the food parcels as a small donation, while in the same vein believed that it will make an impact in the life of the beneficiaries.
According to Ileka, the target beneficiaries have been identified in consultation with the office of the Ongwediva Town Council’s corporate communications officer, Jackson Muma. The drive mostly benefits the elderly and ailing people.
“This is a great effort you have made and therefore, we wish you to grow big to be able to reach out to more people,” Shalyefu said in his donation acceptance address.
He added that bigger companies in town are yet to come forth to offer a helping hand to the town’s vulnerable residents.
