Beginning of the humanitarian operation called “We Are The Central African Republic”

Since Saturday July 16, 2016, the SEWA USA association, the Central African Red Cross, and the P.A.S. HOPFAN nongovernmental organization are working hand in hand to carry out the humanitarian operation called “We Are The Central African Republic”.

The operation is aimed at assisting women and children from the eight districts of Bangui (capital of the Central African Republic) and the towns of Bimbo and Bégoua, through a blood drive campaign. Following the campaign, at least 750 blood bags will be donated to the National Blood Transfusion Centre in Bangui, to be used free of charge in favour of women and children in need.

For the first day of the campaign, the blood drive took place in Boy-Rabe neighborhood, in the 4th district of Bangui. Next week, the operation will continue in other districts.

The SEWA USA association launched the humanitarian operation in the United States, during the armed conflict in the Central African Republic (CAR). The operation was funded thanks to a fundraising initiative targeting primarily members of the CAR Diaspora living in the United States. Other persons and legal entities (including P.A.S. HOPFAN) also contributed to the operation, the cost of which amounts to $7,000, i.e. CFAF 4,005,768.87.

SEWA USA, the Central African Red Cross and P.A.S. HOPFAN are working in partnership within the framework of the tripartite agreement that they signed on September 10, 2013.
