Rössing Uranium donates to Cancer Association of Namibia
(01 December 2021)

Rössing Uranium donated N$ 37 130.42 to the Cancer Association of Namibia (CAN), on Wednesday, 1 December 2021, in aid of cancer. For the past 14-years, Rössing Uranium has supported the Cancer Association of Namibia with cash proceedings generated from the popular fun walk event held at the annual Rössing marathon.

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Rössing Marathon was hosted virtually and unfortunately, the fun walk event did not take place. However, Rössing Uranium is committed to our motto, “Working for Namibia” and saw it fit to continue with this support.

Rössing Uranium’s acting managing director Liezl Davies said, “as a business, we value the health and wellbeing of not just our employees but we are equally committed to delivering support to the communities in which we operate.

She added that partnering with stakeholders, such as the Cancer Association whose work touches the lives of all Namibian people, is a worthwhile partnership.”

“We host awareness campaigns on cancer for our workforce during the Breast Cancer month and Prostate Cancer month. This awareness campaign signifies our commitment to supporting cancer programmes and sharing of information with our employees,” she said.

Liezl added that “Cancer affects everyone’s life and as a responsible employer, Rössing will endeavour to support where possible initiatives such as those by the Cancer Association, aimed at enhancing the livelihood of our communities.

The donation was received by the Cancer Association’s volunteer committee Chairperson, Alts van Niekerk.

On behalf of Cancer Association, Alts thanks Rössing Uranium for the donation, noting that every dollar donated to the association is a fortune, with which they can help somebody in great need.
