Debmarine Namibia handed over 12 new toilets to the Nicolas Witbooi Memorial School on 22 February in Dordabis, Khomas region with the aim of providing a safe and clean environment for learners, teachers and staff.
Debmarine Namibia CEO Willy Mertens said at the event that “access to clean and hygienic toilets is a basic human right,” and that these toilets will help to improve the overall health and well-being of the community.
He highlighted that proper sanitation and handwashing are crucial in preventing the spread of diseases and illnesses. The toilets are valued at N$350 000.
The managing director of Innv8e Group of Companies, Tuna Willem, said these are the first locally-manufactured toilets in Namibia, and that the process has been an opportunity for job- creation since they were not imported.
