On 15th July, the Republic of Equatorial Guinea Ambassador to Ethiopia, Crisantos Obama Ondo, delivered a cheque for 50 thousand US dollars to the resident representative of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (ACNUR), Cosmas Chanda, for the construction project of a donated school.

The emotional ceremony took place at the headquarters of the Equatorial Guinea permanent mission in Addis Abeba, in the presence of the Commissioner from the African Union Charged with Political Affairs, Minata Samate Cesuma, representing the president of the African Union Commission, Mussa Faki Mahamad.

The accredited Republic of Equatorial Guinea Ambassador before the African Union, the ECA and the Government of Ethiopia, Crisantos Obama Ondo, delivered a cheque for 50 thousand US dollars to Cosmas Chanda, in order to begin the construction project for the school donated by H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.

Both the Representative of the AU Commission and the ACNUR Representative thanked the President and his Government for his unswerving commitment to the humanitarian cause and his pragmatism in favour of African integration. Samate Cesuma particularly expressed recognition of the initiative from the First Lady, Constancia Mangue de Obiang, for receiving seven families from the same refugee camp.

The ACNUR representative in Addis Abeba, in addition to ensuring that the money will be used exclusively for the construction of the school, also added that its design and construction would be entrusted to a specialist company and the periodical inspection of the work would be reported to the ambassador Crisantos Obama Ondo.
