Speaking to ANGOP on Saturday, the project’s coordinator, Ilda Ukete, said the most common diseases diagnosed were malaria, high blood pressure and scab.

According to her, the success of the activities of the association has counted on aid of physicians, nurses and specialists from Moxico General Hospital (HGM).

In the meantime, she added, the solidarity gesture aims at providing medical assistance and medicines to the people, taking into account the countless hurdles they face to reach sanitary units located far away from their communities.
