OEWONA receives support.

The First Lady, Madam Penehupifo Pohamba, recently received N$5000 from Namibia Breweries and Josefina Nicodemus as part of the 2012 Windhoek Lager Ambassador initiative. Pohamba received the donation in her capacity as patron of the Organisation for the Empowerment of Widows/Widowers and Orphans of HIV/Aids in Namibia (OE WONA) and president of the Organisation of African First Ladies against HIV/Aids. Josefina Nicodemus had nominated Jacqueline Hindjou-Mafwila, the February winner of the Windhoek Lager Ambassador award. Nicodemus received N$10 000, of which N$ 5000 was donated to a charity of her choice--OEWONA. The first lady, a founder member of OEWONA, said: "Organisations such as OEWONA can always do with some extra cash. As you know we have many widows, widowers and orphaned children that need our help- be it with food, clothing, educational support, school uniforms and the like. NBL has supported us on numerous occasions and we are grateful." Councillor Joseph Auala, acting executive director of OEWONA, and also founding member of the trust, applauded Nicodemus for selecting that organisation. She promised that the organisation will continue with its work so as to help many more needy Namibians.
