WINDHOE: Albino Association of Namibia has received a financial boost of 23 100.00 N.dollar from the female Namibian Police Officers who were serving in the United Nations Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) and United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).
The handing over was done at Police Sports Ground Hall in Olympia during the official welcoming ceremony of the thirty-one female contingent that recently returned home
Namibia Police Detective Inspector Hilya Haipumbu who handed over the donation to Albino Association of Namibia’s President Joseph Ndinomupya and his Deputy Warde Kambabi, informed the gathering that the small amount she was handing over was contributed by individual contingent members from their allowances they received while serving in the United Nations Mission in Darfur.

The Namibian Police Force has been sending its members to participate in Peace Keeping Missions under the mandate of the United Nations or African Union (AU) since 2000.
