In collaboration with Support e.V. Ulm, Germany, the Ohorongo Otavi Community Trust (OOCT), established by Ohorongo Cement, has donated specialist sunscreen to SINASRA in aid of the Namibian Albino Community. OOCT donated 1250 tubes of sunscreen worth an estimated N$18 000 to the cause.
Dr Peter Stoermer from SINASRA said that there are estimated to be more than 1600 people with albinism in Namibia, and that specialist sunscreen is required to prevent the occurrence of skin cancer. He noted that SINASRA is grateful for the donation, as these sunscreens are very expensive. They will be available free from hospitals throughout the country.
"We are very happy to be able to make a difference in the lives of people and it gives us true peace of mind knowing that people like Dr Stoermer and SINASRA are more than equipped to ensure that the entire Namibian Albino Community benefits from this donation," said Carina Sowden, Marketing & Communications Manager of Ohorongo Cement.
