Brazil made a humanitarian donation of food and nutritional products to the government of Equatorial Guinea to support the population directly affected by the explosions that took place on March 7th, in the Nkuantoma barracks, in the city of Bata, resulting in hundreds of injuries and more than 100 dead.
A ceremony to mark the symbolic food delivery took place on March 25th in Malabo, the country’s capital. The donation is a humanitarian response from Brazil to the appeal launched by the country to the international community. It is estimated that about 1,000 families, or equivalent to about 6,000 people, will benefit from the donation. The activity was coordinated by the Brazilian Cooperation Agency (ABC), of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MRE), and by the Brazilian Embassy in Malabo, with the support of the World Food Programme (WFP).
