“Now that learners are back to school Telecom is aware of the fact that there are needy schools in the most remote areas, and with this small donation Telecom hopes to support and address the gaps of needy schools in the remote areas by ensuring learners are adhering to the safety precaution measures that are required on a daily basis,” he said
Hiwilepo concluded by commending the Namibian government as well as all the front-line officials for the work they are doing during this pandemic.
