Walvis Bay Salt Holdings donates to drought relief

Walvis Bay Salt Holdings on Wednesday donated N.dollars 100 000 towards drought relief in the Erongo Region.

The donation was handed over to the office of Erongo Governor Cleophas Mutjavikua, who said the situation in the region has worsened since the state of emergency was declared by President Hage Geingob earlier this year.

'The Erongo Region is heavily affected by this drought and we therefore appreciate these donations,' Mutjavikua said.

A number of farmers, especially in the corridors, have lost their livestock to the drought.

Walvis Bay Salt Holdings Managing Director Andre Snyman said they hope the donation will make a difference in the lives of farmers and their livestock.

The funds are deposited directly into suppliers' accounts, which then provide fodder, lucerne and lick for livestock.
