NBL empowers shebeens against COVID-19
Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL) – a subsidiary of the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group – last week handed over sanitizer and masks to the value of N$80 000 to the Namibia Shebeen Association (NASA) in support of the fight against COVID-19.
At the handover, NBL Managing Director, Marco Wenk stressed the importance of adhering to the precautionary measures introduced by government. Wenk: “As our stakeholder, NASA plays a key role in ensuring the safety of our consumer, and as a caring and responsible corporate citizen passionate about our purpose of “creating a future, enhancing life”, we gladly support NASA in creating a safe environment for its members. This donation will benefit about 300 shebeens in the country, supporting efforts around providing a safe and hygienic environment for our customers and consumers.”
Wenk further noted that this donation was but the first round of support towards NASA members in response to COVID-19, and that the next sponsorship will include training on COVID-19 health and safety best practice in trade, to the shebeen fraternity.
NASA president, Andreas Nuule: “We truly appreciate this support from NBL – a very welcoming gesture at just the right time by this caring partner. This support will contribute significantly to protecting customers and consumers against COVID-19, and promoting trade with extra care and hygiene measures in place.”
