The Namibia Red Cross has launched two projects in the Erongo Region to the tune of about N$3.5 million in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and the fire that occurred in the Twaloloka informal settlement in Walvis Bay. One of the projects will see the Red Cross supporting 1 200 vulnerable households in Walvis Bay with cash payments of N$500 each in the coming two weeks, to be repeated to the same households for another two months. Speaking at the launch, Chairperson of the National Governing Board of the Namibia Red Cross, Dr. Rosa Persendt, pointed out that although the launch is happening now, the Namibia Red Cross team has in fact been on the ground supporting communities since the beginning of August this year.
