Our Star of the Week is Walvis Bay, Mayor Wilfred Immanuel who through his good leadership averted a possible food crisis at Walvis Bay and Swakopmund State Hospitals after about 85 patients were left without food for several days when a catering company contracted to supply food, withdrew its services due to money owed to it by the Ministry of Health and Social Services.
In response, Immanuel, sent an SOS requesting assistance from the business community who responded with donations. Through various donations and the mayoral fund as well as the 518 Neighbourhood Watch, Immanuel managed to feed patients at both hospitals for several days and this enabled them to take their medicines that cannot be taken on an empty stomach.
