Caring over Christmas: EBH Namibia Reaches out to Animals in Need
10 January 2014

  For many of us, the festive season means going away and enjoying a change of pace as we spend time with loved ones. Unfortunately, this is also a time where the needs of our animals are often overlooked.

Shipping company Elgin Brown & Hamer (EBH) Namibia decided to step into the breach by making a sizable donation to the Walvis Bay SPCA’s Santa Paws 2013 project in the form of pet food, pet supplies and funds. “At EBH Namibia an important part of our ethos is to provide support to the surrounding community and identifying where the needs lie. Animals are often overlooked in this regard, especially over the festive season, and so we decided to get involved,” explains Hannes Uys, Chief Executive Officer of EBH Namibia.

A highly-rated international ship repair company and part of the DCD Group, EBH Namibia has involved itself in several projects based on the needs of the Walvis Bay community, as part of its corporate social investment (CSI) drive. The company views a genuine commitment to social responsibility as key to its own sustainability, as well as to the broader environment.

“Taking responsibility for the sustainability of the environment in which we operate is a big part of who we are. Job creation for local citizens is high on our agenda, and regular charity drives will help to create a stable and prosperous community. Our community includes our four-legged friends, many of whom are abandoned over the Christmas period,” says Uys.

“In these tough economic times, many non-profit organisations struggle to stay afloat. The Walvis Bay SPCA relies entirely on donations from caring individuals, community-minded businesses and grants from charitable foundations. We were delighted to be able to help this Christmas.”

The company’s mandate of giving back to the community is taken to heart by its staff members, as evidenced by the enthusiasm given to the Santa Paws project.
