Namibia: French Give N$365000 for Toilets

Donations aimed at helping thousands of Namibians who were severely affected by floods in most northern parts of the country continue to pour in.

On Friday, the French government donated N$365000 to the Namibia Red Cross Society to be channelled towards the construction of toilets. Deputy Prime Minister, Dr Libertina Amathila, received the donation.

Lack of toilet facilities in the north is of concern to health officials especially after the regions this year reported cholera and acute diarrhoea outbreaks. French Ambassador to Namibia, Philippe Bossière, says the donation is in response to President Hifikepunye Pohamba’s emergency call to the international community earlier this year to assist flood-hit regions in the recovery period.
