Former Combatants to Get Agricultural Machines

Luanda — About 450 former combatants who are members of farming co-operatives countrywide will receive still this year several machines for agricultural work, in the ambit of a programme of the Agriculture Ministry.

This move is aimed at helping the beneficiaries in their socioeconomic reintegration efforts, ANGOP has learnt.

According to the secretary-general of the Ministry of Former Combatants and Veterans of the Homeland, Feliciano Salomão Himulova, who received the donation on behalf of the incumbent minister, Kundi Paihama, this offer is only intended to benefit those ex-combatants who are members of a farming co-operative.

"This process of upgrading (ex-combatants) and supplying them with certain goods is a project that is estimated at 10 million US dollars, with the beneficiaries being free from any reimbursement, aimed at contributing to the self-sustenance of the co-operatives members and their families, as well as to the increase of national productivity", he explained.

On his turn, António Coutinho, director of MultiAuto, the firm that donated the machines, revealed that in face of the request of the Former Combatants Ministry, the company decided to provide theoretical and practical training of the beneficiaries, so that they can master and take good care of the machinery.
