Maltese potato donation arrives in Namibia

Erongo governor Neville Andre in Namibia on Friday received twenty refrigerated shipping containers (500 tonnes) with potatoes which Malta sent to Namibia as a donation. Ester Mbathera reports for The Namibian.

The Mediterranean island had an excess stock of potatoes this season, resulting in the donation to Namibia through its government overseas aid programme.

Andre said the donation was part of the international community’s response to president Hage Geingob’s appeal for assistance because of the threat to food security as a result of prolonged droughts and the impact of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
