WINDHOEK – Meatco, through its MEATMA brand, recently donated boxes of boerewors and burger patties valued at N$2 600 to the recipients of the City of Windhoek Shoe Box Donation Handover event.
MEATMA Shop donated these meat products as a means of ploughing back to the community and strengthening its partnership with the City of Windhoek. These meat products were handed over by Griffith Uahindua, MEATMA Sales Representative: Local Markets & Value Addition. Last year, MEATMA contributed to the City of Windhoek New Year’s Eve event. All the products committed to the event were not used and it was decided to donate the remainder to charities identified by the City of Windhoek through their Corporate Social Responsibility initiative.
The aim of the sponsorship is to build partnerships with MEATMA clients, in this case the City of Windhoek, and to help spread the word about the MEATMA brand. Meatco sees Corporate Social Responsibility as a way in which its values, corporate culture and operations come together. Supporting the communities that are important to ots clients, and which in turn are prospective MEATMA customers, is one way of doing that.
The goods were donated to the following homes from Katutura:
1. Home of Good hope represented by Monica Imanga;
2. Greenwell Soup Kitchen represented by Ms. Emilie Kaheka; and
3. Ouma Sanna Snyder (The Granny with 17 grandchildren in Havanna)
