In wake of strengthening the Africa-China relationship and extending gratitude towards the help provided by China to the Republic of Djibouti, Djibouti’s Prime Minister Abdoulkader Kamil Mohamed honoured a group of Chinese doctors and nurses with the nation’s highest honor on May 10.
Twelve Chinese medics were conferred with the Independence Day Medal of the Republic of Djibouti-the highest civilian honour awarded by Djibouti to its citizens and international friends, by Prime Minister Abdoulkader Kamil Mohamed who on the occasion even praised them for their hard work and thanked the Chinese government for sending the medical team to Djibouti.
The Chinese medics have been extending technical and humanitarian assistance to COVID-19 patients of Djibouti since their arrival on April 30. They are to return to China on May 11.
Before Djibouti, the Chinese team had conducted a two-week aid mission in Ethiopia after their arrival in the country’s capital city Addis Ababa with urgently needed medical supplies, including protective equipment, on April 16.
