THE AMBULANCE IS FINALLY ARRIVERD IN BURKINA!

The ambulance, a gift from the Bagni di Lucca Participation and Development Association, has finally reached its destination in Burkina Faso, one of the poorest countries in Africa and under constant threat from Islamic fundamentalism.
From today (November 14), in fact, it is available to the Hopital Saint Camille de Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina and its director Père Dr Paul Oudraogo,
The sending was possible thanks to the collaboration of the association with the SVS of Livorno which sold the vehicle and the organization of the Camillian Fathers of Rome who, through Dr. Oudraogo in constant connection with the president of our association, Dr. Alessandro Ghionzoli, ensured that after a long journey by sea and by land, he reached his destination.
The ambulance embarked in a container left the port of Livorno and headed south through the Pillars of Hercules and, circumnavigating North West Africa, first skirted Morocco then Western Sahara, Mauritania and then south until arriving in the Ivory Coast where, loaded on a train, was transported to Burkina to reach its capital Ouagadougou. A very long and interminable journey that ended happily.
The ambulance completed the vehicle fleet (actually very scarce) of the main hospital in Burkina and will also serve as a social transport for the many sick people who need constant periodic care such as blood transfusions and dialysis patients.
The Participation and Development Association, together with the Social Cooperative Solidarity and Development of Bagni di Lucca, which in Italy deals with asylum seekers but which also intends to implement and manage international cooperation projects with Africa, thanks all those, members, employees and volunteers, who worked for the success of the operation An ambulance for Burkina. In particular, we want to remember Professor Franco Grossi, who is no longer with us, a former teacher at the Agricultural Institute of Mutigliano who was part not only of our trips to Africa, but also of the group that designed and implemented this intervention. Franco, together with us, has been so committed and has never lost hope of sending an ambulance as concrete help to the people of Burkina Faso, threatened by poverty, famine and terrorism.
