A Libyan cargo plane carrying humanitarian aid and medical consignment including polio vaccines, arrived in Cotonou, Benin, late Sunday as part of a medical campaign.

The campaign was launched by the Qadhafi Project for African Women, Children and Youth targeting 12 countries in the African continent.

The management committee of the Project, named after Libyan leader Col. Moammar Kadhafi who initiated it, had decided last December to undertake massive medical campaigns and to immunize children against polio and measles in several African countries.

Official sources said the shipment comprised 15,000 doses of vaccines, a sizeable quantity of medicines, mainly antibiotics, food supplies, tents, blankets, clothes and footwear for children and women.

In the entourage are 40 doctors specialised in different fields, and volunteers drawn from the national Youth Volunteer Service Commission and the youth league as well as NGOs and Libyan scouts.

The first medical campaign by the Project was held in Chad on 15 January.

During such campaigns, doctors conduct medical consultations and surgeries as well as health surveys targeting women and children.

Countries targeted by the Project include Chad, Niger, Nigeria, Mali, Benin, Senegal, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Gambia and Burkina Faso.

The Project, with its headquarters in Tripoli, inaugurated on 31 December 2005, but started its actual work in 2006. It seeks to mobilise efforts and resources in favour of the youth, children and women in Africa.

I am working for the Belgian human rights association 'Werkgroep Morkhoven' which revealed the Zandvoort childporn case (88.539 victims). The case was covered up by the authorities. During the past years I have been really shocked by the way the rich countries of the western empire want to rule the world.
