MealForTwo starts the Festive Season with good wishes - Namibia Safari and Lodges - Gondwana Collection

COVID-19. Status quo in Namibia.

It is with regret that Gondwana Collection Namibia has learnt that the COVID-19 virus has reached Namibia. On 14 March 2020, President Hage Geingob confirmed the first two cases. On 17 March, the President declared a state of emergency.

On 24 March 2020, the additional measures in response to the COVID-19 outbreak have been announced. They include a lockdown of the Khomas and Eronogo regions from 27 March until 16 April 2020. For regulations and guidelines please click here

Gondwana is fully aware of the current situation and continues to monitor the spread of the virus and the resulting changes to our industry. In view of the state of emergency and the additional measures ordered by the government, employees at Gondwana House in Windhoek will be working from home. Due to international and regional travel restrictions Gondwana has reduced its operations at the lodges as far as possible. Most employees have been sent home, at full pay. 

The Ministry of Health has made availability for a toll-free phone number within Namibia for queries with regards to COVID-19. The toll-free number is 800-100-100 or alternatively 911.

MealForTwo starts the Festive Season with good wishes

Avatar of inke inke - 07. December 2017 - Gondwana Collection

The Gondwana Care Trust’s initiative MealForTwo has made its first official move in support of two charitable organisations at the beginning of December. This has allowed the MEGS Soup Kitchen, Senior Park Old Age Home as well as Healt the Land organisation to start the festive season in the best possible spirit. 

On 3 December, members of the Gondwana Collection attended a special Christmas lunch hosted by the MEGS Soup Kitchen, which became the first official MealForTwo recipient. The lunch was attended by Bank Windhoek, a partner in the MealForTwo campaign, other supporters of the organisation, and various members of the Khomasdal community. Bank Windhoek supported the campaign with generous financial donation, further support was received by Mrs Katja Klein and Anchors Restaurant Walvis Bay.

A day later, on 4 December, Bank Windhoek and the Gondwana Collection visited the Senior Park Old Age Home to deliver food packs in support of the small community. Over 100 boxes were delivered to the home, thanks to the plentiful support of Bank Windhoek, working through the MealForTwo campaign.

In Okahandja, on 5 December, the Heal the Land organisation also received festive bundles, supported by the MealforTwo initiative. 

Bank Windhoek showed their support by donating N$ 125 000, towards the MealForTwo initiative. Over 500 people all over Namibia have been surprised with support and gift bundles. 

“MealForTwo is a project that is bigger than Gondwana and Bank Windhoek. We feel it is important to gain further partnership with other companies, so that we can grow the project and support as many people across Namibia as we can, in accordance with the Harambee Prosperity Plan,” says Manni Goldbeck, Director of Brand and Marketing of the Gondwana Collection Namibia. 

If anyone would like to become part of this initiative, please contact the head of the Gondwana Care Trust Liaison, Dgini Visser

Hierdie was n baie mooi gebaar en die Grootmense het dit baie geniet. Ek is n buite staander wat help met ander dinge by senior Park en ek wil net graag onder julle aandag bring dat daar nog ander groot dinge is wat gedoen moet word soos mense wat al vir 4 jaar soner warm water moet voortgaan en lekkasies wat meebring dat die verbruik so hoog is dat hulle die water wil afsny. Die Gereformeerde kerk Khomas Hoogland het al duisende spandeer on daar te help maar die fondse het ook opgedroog. As daar instansies is wat ook hier kan help sal dit hoog wardeer worn. Dankie vir julle liefde en omgee vir die groot mense.
