Staff from detachment 'Orion' delivers medical supplies to Caritas Djibuti

August 10, 2020
  • The supplies have been donated by the 'Colegio Menor Nuestra Señora de Loreto' from Madrid

Medical personnel from the Aero -Tactical Detachment (DAT in Spanish) 'Orion' has delivered a batch of medical supplies donated by the Colegio Menor Nuestra Señora de Loreto, in Madrid, to Cáritas HQ in Djibuti. This donation is an extension of the previous one delivered on July 9th.

This sort of collaboration is usual between Caritas Djibouti and the Spanish contingent, that is part of the European Union Naval Force in Somalia, fighting piracy in the Horn of Africa within the framework of Operation Atalanta.

the delivery of donations made by different organizations and individuals from Spain is managed more efficiently, focusing on the needs expressed by this Catholic organization, dedicated to figh poverty, exclusion, intolerance and discrimination for more than three decades. In particular, Caritas Djibouti helps children and teenagers without families, refugees mostly from Somalia, who are offered a roof, food, education and health.

Caritas Djibouti supports the work and projects of international agencies and non-governmental organisations and joins the efforts of several ministries and local associations.
