The EU Capacity Building Mission in Mali coaches since two years the Crisis Management Centre of the Ministry for Security and Civil Protection which coordinates currently the Malian response to the Corona-pandemic.
The material was donated to the Ministry’s Crisis Management Centre (Centre de Coordination et de Gestion des crises (CeCoGeC) du Ministère de la Sécurité de la Protection Civile).
The Mission furthermore produces currently two training videos which guide members of the Internal Security Forces how to protect citizens and themselves from a further spreading of the virus. The acquisition of 5.000 washable fabric masks for the use of the Internal Security Forces in their daily work is also ongoing.
Those that protect day and night their fellow Malians shall not be the first ones to fall ill in the current pandemic.
