Spanish troops deployed within EUTM RCA distribute pediatric medicines donated by 'COFARES foundation'

December 30, 2020
  • The Spanish mission within EUTM RCA distributes 533 kilos of medicines for the children of the Saint Jean de Galabadja Health Center in Bangui.

The COFARES Foundation has donated nearly 600 kilos of pediatric medicines that will improve the lives of children in the Bangui Health Center in the Central African Republic. This donation has been managed by the CIMIC cell of the Operations Command in close coordination with the Spanish military deployed to EUTM-RCA.

At this time, in the middle of Christmas holydays, these medicines will ease children's suffering, on this unstable land. Once again our Armed Forces are showing their most supportive side.

The Director of the St. Jean de Galabadja Salesian Community, Father Jean Claude Kikonde Komba, which includes a parish, a school for 1,200 students and a health centre, all free of charge, has deeply appreciated this donation  that will provide relieve to the children and young people of the city.

The Spanish military involved in this donation would like to thank COFARES Foundation for its generosity.
