During a brief ceremony held at Victoria Hospital on Thursday 9 March 2023 , Mr. OKANIWA Ken, Ambassador of Japan to the Republic of Seychelles based in Nairobi, handed over some medical equipment through the Japanese Grant Aid worth 100 Million JPY to the Ministry of Health which was being represented by Dr. Danny Louange, Chief Executive Officer of the Health care Agency.
The grant aid, which is based in principle on ‘The Economic and Social Development Programme’, was offered by the Government of Japan to the Government of Seychelles to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic and will also provide basic health services to the people of Seychelles. A portable X-ray machine, defibrillator, syringe pumps and wheel chairs were some of the equipment. A four wheel drive ambulance which is being custom made will arrive later during the year.
