The toy “parade” of the President of the Youth Federation of the PDGE, and Second Vice President of the Republic, H.E. Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, this year crosses Equatorial Guinea’s borders, because it reaches as far as Ivory Coast, where 100,000 toys will be distributed. Jeronimo Osa Osa Ecoro represented the Second Vice President at the first ceremony of gift-giving to children of the capital, Abidjan.
The toy drive that is carried out every year by the Second Vice President and President of the Youth Federation of the PDGE, H.E.
