On December 12 the Charity Gala against Ebola took place with overwhelming success, organized by the Association of Wives of African Ambassadors in Belgium (AEEAB) in collaboration with the Embassy of Equatorial Guinea in Brussels.
Over 300 guests attended the event, including figures such as the Director of Sub-Saharan Africa of the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, François Cornet, Princess Stephanie of Windisch-Graetz, and the new Secretary General of the ACP (Africa, Caribbean, Pacific), Patrick I. Gomes.
During the dinner, held in an emblematic hotel in the Belgian capital, the activities were highlighted of the ambassadors in Brussels of Guinea Conakry and Sierra Leone, countries affected by the effects of the devastating virus. Both diplomats welcomed the collaboration in this gala of Equatorial Guinea, which not only supports it from Malabo through the Government, but also from the European capital through charity. They also reviewed the courage and generosity of Perseveranda Mangue, chairwoman of the AEEAB and wife of the Equatorial Guinean Ambassador in Brussels, Carmelo Nvono Nca, for leading an initiative like this.
The chairwoman, in her speech, acknowledged the commitment of the members of the Equatorial Guinean embassy, since the start of the mandate of Nvono Nca, “they took part in all events, following the guidelines set by the Ambassador.” She also used the event to say goodbye to her year as head of the AEEAB, wishing good luck to the next African country to hold the chairmanship in 2015.
For his part, Ambassador Nvono Nca held talks with several media and representatives of international forums, stating that he has only followed “each of the directives of President Obiang, who knows how to interpret and execute to perfection the very solid bases of a foreign policy which has the objective of international visibility by law.”
Finally, Nvono Nca said that “Equatorial Guinea not only advances; today we must accept that it leads a new way of understanding international relations, a process that is based on what President Obiang has as a priority: peace, cooperation and solidarity.”
