MORE than 30 elderly and disabled people in John Pandeni constituency in the Khomas region could not contain their happiness last week when they were presented with blankets by OTESA Civil Engineering and Italian civil construction company, CMC.
John Pandeni constituency councillor Rachel Jacobs said her office decided to work jointly with the stakeholders, especially through the donation of the blankets, in order to assist the elderly to conquer the cold as the winter season closes in.
The two companies donated 100 blankets but not all the beneficiaries were present at the official handover.
In his speech Luca de Maria of CMC said that it was part of their social responsibility aimed at giving a helping hand to the vulnerable people where necessary. “We are confident the blankets will play a vital role in changing the elderly people’s lives this winter,” he said.
Leena Hiskia who came to get a blanket on behalf of her elderly mother thanked the two organisations.
“I am very happy for the donation; at least my mother can cover herself in this cold weather.”
