Angola: Military Centre Gets Medicines, Health Material

Luanda — An ambulance, medicines, crutches and wheelchairs were donated last Saturday to disabled military people admitted in the Recovery Centre of the Angolan Armed Forces (FAA), located in Cacuaco Municipality's Sequele ward (Funda Commune), in Luanda Province.

This donation happens in the ambit of one more anniversary of the Angolan Armed Forces (FAA), to be marked on December 17, and also in the ambit of the project dubbed "saúde chegou" (health has arrived), as part of the foundation anniversary of the ruling MPLA party, marked on December 10, whose specialty committee of physicians organised this charity activity.

The secretary of the MPLA party's specialty committee of physicians, José Luís, said that was an act of solidarity with disabled persons.

The activities also included the deployment of mobile teams who explained to people ways to reduce infant/maternal death, distribute condoms, sodium hypochlorite and insecticide-treated mosquito-nets, among other measures.
