NBC launches care campaign

The Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) has launched its NBC Cares project to assist communities around the country affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a statement on Wednesday, the company noted that communities around Namibia are going through exceptionally difficult times amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing socio-economic challenges.
The broadcaster said it understands that its role in these trying times is to serve as a catalyst and it, therefore, aims to continue in the fulfilment of its mandate to the Namibian nation with this corporate social responsibility project.
“The NBC Cares campaign is structured around mobilising stakeholders, as well as the general public, to deploy resources in order to aid the most adversely affected communities due to the COVID-19 pandemic and associated rising socio-economic disruptions,” the statement further reads.
NBC Corporate Communications Officer, Beaulah Boois, said in the statement that the corporation seeks to collaborate with corporate, non-governmental organisations, small and medium enterprises and the Government of Namibia to source and distribute aid to these communities.
It further advised those who want to collaborate, provide financial relief or donate on a larger scale to contact Boois at NBC_cares@nbc.na or 0811420636.
She said companies that donate a minimum of N$15 000 qualify for a free airtime/mileage package.
