Windhoek-Over 200 elderly people from the Okakarara Constituency last Friday gathered at Coblenz settlement to enjoy an early Christmas lunch and gifts organised by the Okakarara Constituency Councillor, Vetaruhe Kandorozu.
Dundee Precious Metal, China Henan International Co-operation Group and Otjituuo Youth Group co-sponsored the lunch at a cost of more than N$45 000.
The senior citizens were treated to a meal and gift combo consisting of a radio and a torch. Kandorozu said these
items were selected due to the great importance they play in the lives of the elders.
The senior citizens use the radio to follow current events while the torches come in handy, as most of the pensioners live in areas where there is no electricity.
Kandorozu said the event was meant to celebrate the lives of the elders and the roles they play in the communities.
“It is important to show our elderly great love and support, this will stand as a symbol of our gratitude to them,” he said.
