Luanda — The Government of Japan might deliver one million US dollars to northern Bengo province on Friday, to support the national non-governmental organisations involved in the landmine clearing process in Angola.
The information is contained in press release from the Embassy of Japan to Angola that reached Angop.
According to the source, the amount will be used in the implementation of the fifth phase of the cooperation between the two countries on demining, involving a non-refundable financial aid to Japanese non-governmental organisations for Bengo province.
The programme involves JMAS (Japan Mine Action Service - a Japanese NGO set up by ex-combatants of Japan Defence Force) and the Angolan National Institute of Demining (INAD).
The project is intended to strengthen INAD's demining activity and rural development in Mabubas locality, in Bengo province, to cater for 240,000 people.
