Kretuva Investments, a small company venturing in the printing business at Ongwediva Town in the Oshana Region since 2019, has made a commitment to donate food parcels to 56 less-advantaged residents of the town.

This came to light on Thursday when the company’s managing director, Elizabeth Ileka and her husband, Kretus Ileka, handed over food parcels for 22 of the targeted beneficiaries to the Ongwediva town mayor Taarah Shalyefu at the town.

“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 during the food parcels handing over event.

She described the parcels as a little 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, and the elderly as well as ailing people, are the prime recipients.

“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,” cited Shalyefu in his donation acceptance address, adding that bigger companies in town are yet to come forth to offer a helping hand to the town’s needy residents.

The donated food parcels are valued at N.dollars 4 000 and each contain amongst others, a 10kg bag of maize flour, 10kg bag of macaroni, a bottle of cooking oil and tinned fish.
