Otavi Health Clinic – Provision of Medical Equipment


VALUE: N$ 724 601.00


During the visit of the delegation from NGO Support e.V. in Namibia, the delegates visited the Otavi Health Clinic. This visit showed that although the clinic under the management of head nurse Sister Maria serves the Otavi community well, some room for support especially in terms of material and medical equipment exists. In co-operation with Support e.V, OOCT invested in the upgrading of the Otavi clinic. 

Provision of Medical Equipment

During their visit of the Otavi Health Clinic, the delegation from Support e.V not only considered the renovation of the clinic as required, but also the refurbishment of the clinic with additional medical equipment. The NGO sourced medical equipment in excess of N$700,000.00. The equipment included 35 hospital beds, 39 mattresses, 26 hospital bedside lockers, 4 baby cots, 1 children cot and a lifting platform for patients. The equipment was transported from Walvis Bay to Otavi at no charge by MACS Shipping, Manica Group Namibia, Woker Freight Services and Wesbank Transport. At the public hand-over ceremony on 25th of August 2009 the Honourable Minister of Health and Social Services Richard Kamwi as well as the Regional Director of the Ministry of Health and Social Services for the Otjozondjupa region, MrTaapopi was present.
