In response to the crippling impact of the Covid-19 pandemic in the country, Momentum Metropolitan through its empowerment trust joined the Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NCCI) and the rest of the private sector with a donation of N$350 000 that will go towards assisting government with its Covid-19 relief programme. 

Ingah Ekandjo, a trustee of Momentum Metropolitan Empowerment Trust, said the current wave of the Covid-19 is devastating in the country with the alarming rise of infections over the last few weeks that has left almost every single person affected. “Many of our fellow Namibians are fighting for their lives and livelihoods daily. We have lost colleagues, friends, and loved ones,” she said.  

She stated that the contribution will go towards helping government secure medical equipment, medication, and hospital beds across the country which has been in exceptional shortage given the high demand as a result of the rising positive cases and patients that rely on the health sector. 

The pandemic has devastated the country with infections rising daily, impacting almost every single Namibian. Momentum Metropolitan
