We participated in the City of Windhoek Mayoral Relief Fund during the COVID-19 lockdown period. Oryx, along with some of its retail partners, contributed and distributed 939 food parcels to Windhoek’s vulnerable communities.All Oryx employees were extensively involved in this project. Employees dedicated a significant number of work hours to packing the food parcels and co-ordinating their delivery and distribution. Our corporate partners in this project were:
CLEAN AND FREE WATER PROJECT
When the COVID-19 lockdown period started, Oryx partnered with other local entities to provide clean and free water to Windhoek’s informal settlements.This project co-ordinated the sourcing and delivery of clean water to informal settlements. This included conducting tests to ensure the water is safe for consumption and providing locations for refilling and delivering water.Our corporate partners in this project included the Ohlthaver &List Group, Namibbeton, Namibia Construction, LewCor Group, Pupkewitz Megabuild and Aqua Services. SUPPORTING VULNERABLE CHILDREN We remain committed to the care of vulnerable children, which is evident in the various causes we supported during the year.
CHURCH ALLIANCE FOR ORPHANS (CAFO) NAMIBIA
Oryx donated swimwear and towels to 125 children between the ages of four and 14 years at CAFO. This enabled them to treat these vulnerable children to a weekly swimming pool visit, contributing to their physical development. Oryx also renovated the children’s playground at CAFO and donated a jungle gym and Christmas lights and decorations. Over 150 vulnerable children receive after-school care services at CAFO.
CHILDREN’S CAMP NAMIBIA
We contributed towards printing booklets for a children’s camp that is hosted by Children’s Camp Namibia. Their aim is to give children a place where they can play and learn while affording them the opportunity to just be children. The camp was planned for May 2020 but due to COVID-19, an alternative date will be set.
GROENDRAAI PRIMARY SCHOOL
Oryx donated stationery supplies to Groendraai Primary School, located on a farm 60 km south-west of Rehoboth, in the Hardap region. The school caters to approximately 160 children and is considered a facility in need.
