Namib Mills and Colgate-Palmolive gives out

Once again, for the third time in a row, as the nation celebrates Independence Day, Namib Mills and Colgate-Palmolive celebrate by bringing delight to those who are less fortunate. This means giving aid where it is needed and fostering a culture of reflecting on a 23 year journey travelled and take the opportunity to help raise awareness on giving, sharing and caring.
As a part of their corporate social responsibility, Namib Mills generously donated Namib Mills products to the value of N$5000 to the Help Centre organisation as well as the to the elderly community at Oude Rust Oord. In addition to the products Namib Mills also donated a further N$5000 cash to each organization.
The Namibian Dental Association received a generous contribution valued at N$20 000 from Colgate-Palmolive. A token aimed at creating awareness on oral care hygiene and will, in its efficiency, be used to uplift disadvantaged children. Also, a part of this contribution will be used in promoting the National Dental Health month in September.
Advertising agency, Advantage Y&R believes too, that the spirit of celebrating independence is not far from addressing the needs of those who don’t have. In its reflection on “how far we’ve come and where we are going”, it realizes that there is still quite a journey to travel and therefore using any means to give back should be a priority for every Namibian. Advantage Y&R sponsors this initiative by using its craft to bring awareness to charity pledges such as these.
As a collective contribution from these companies, this has boiled down to a unifying central message: “23 years of an independent nation can mean placing importance on caring for one another”.
