“Our most recent contribution was last year when we donated two boreholes to the Ûiba-Ôas Co-operative to provide them with a reliable supply of water. We are pleased to again make a positive contribution to the small-scale miners through this sponsorship, for the team to attend the conference. It is our wish that the team will come back with knowledge they will use intheir businesses,” he said.
“As a responsible corporate citizen, we recognize the importance of supporting our partners, and that is why we decided to support the delegation to attend the conference and be better equipped to support their members in contributing to the overall success of mining inNamibia.”
