The Popular Republic of China has made the delivery of two new ambulances and medicines to the hospital in the Equatorial Guinean capital.

The event was attended by Cui Weilei, Business Attaché of the Embassy of China; Miguel Obiang Abeso, Delegate Minister of Health and Social Welfare, and Abu Bakar Gaye, Representative of the World Health Organization (WHO) in Equatorial Guinea.

The Business Attaché of the Embassy of China said the donation of two new ambulances was a continuation of the delivery that was made last year, after identifying new needs of the health sector in this country.

For his part, the Delegate Minister of Health and Social Welfare expressed his gratitude for the donation, stressing that China’s generosity should not surprise Equatorial Guineans, because China has assisted Equatorial Guinea for a long time in its health development.

Following the signing of the minutes, the Business Attaché of the Embassy of China and the WHO Representative in Equatorial Guinea, together with the directors of the hospital, visited the Department of Ophthalmology and talked to the doctors and patients to hear about the job performance of the Chinese doctors sent by the government of that country, within the framework of bilateral cooperation.

It is noteworthy that since 1970, the Chinese government has sent 27 medical groups to Equatorial Guinea with a total of 483 health professionals who have worked in hospitals in Malabo and Bata.
