Hjem > Humanitarian donation CAR

In conjunction with my visit to Bangui, Central African Republic I organized an humanitarian fundraiser for Doctors Without Borders. During the DXped amateur radio operators and clubs&foundations donated so that we at the end could donate 11.088 USD to Doctors Without Border and earmarked their work in Central African Republic.

The donation also included HF equipment to Doctors Without Borders, tailor made to their need, as well as upgrading their current software. DWOB use a truck to bring material and medications to their hospitals throughout the country. With the new equipment provided by one donor they can now track their trucks position by using HF technology instead of expensive satellite technology saving them some costs, as well as making it more secure for their workers. One of their convoys with staff and patients were attacked in May 2016, with one of their staff being shot dead.
