The information was released last weekend during a meeting chaired by AAG-Angola provincial director Gaspar Domingos João aimed at taking stock of activities developed by the Association during the first half of the current year.

The participants praised the degree of compliance with the activity related to the period under review, despite difficulties recorded in its execution.

In the context of the aid and control visits, the participants recommended the municipal departments of Belas, Cacuaco, Cazenga and Viana to conduct a new registration process to allow a more realistic statistical database.

Luanda board comprises 21 members elected on 28 January 2017 for a five-year term.

AAG-Angola is a non-governmental, nonpartisan and philanthropic organisation of a voluntary nature.

The Association defends the promotion and preservation of social and economic rights of citizens of three movements that participated in the national liberation struggle against Portuguese colonialism until November 11, 1975.
