First Rand Namibia last month made a donation of N.dollars 375 400 towards spare parts for the repair of 52 medical beds at the Katutura Intermediate Hospital.

First Rand Namibia Corporate Social Investment Manager Revonia Kahivere in a media statement on Tuesday said the repair works on the beds commenced last week.

“We were made aware of the shortage of medical beds at the hospital and jumped at the chance to assist in repairing the beds, to help sick and ailing patients to recuperate comfortably. Access to health care is critical for us to function as a society and FirstRand Namibia prioritises the wellbeing of our nation in all spheres especially for the most marginalised in our communities,” she said.

Medical Superintendent at the Katutura Intermediate Hospital Dr Nelago Amugu extended the hospital’s gratitude and acknowledged that the donation and repair would go a long way in alleviating the shortage of appropriate beds at the hospital.
