WB We Care Trust shows their love

The WB We Care trust was founded in 2005 by WB CEO, Jesko Woermann, to ensure that money made available for corporate responsibility projects is actually spent properly. Although the focus of the We Care Trust is primarily on orphans and children affected by HIV/Aids, the trustees felt that an effort should be made to assist those who were hit the hardest by the effects of the virus.

The trust donated foods stuffs to the value of N$50,000 and clothing to the Ministry of Health and Socials Services. Michael Shilongo, Chief Administrative Officer (MoHSS), said that they appreciate the donation and that they would get the goods to the right people.

Rebecca Woermann, a trustee of the WB We Care Trust, said that it is a privilege to be able to assist and she hopes that other companies will also realise how some of our fellow Namibians struggle to get food on the table.

The WB We Care Trust invites organisations who assist orphans and those affected by HIV/Aids to apply for assistance and benefit like numerous other who get monthly contributions. Fennie Mwetudhana, administrator of the trust,  can be contacted in this regard.
