A shipment of vital medical equipment and supplies was handed over today to the Durba Referral Hospital and the Gambella Clinic in Watsa in the Haut-Uele district of the DRC close to the Kibali Gold Project by project developer Randgold Resources.

This shipment follows an earlier consignment of medical equipment and supplies, which was handed over last month to the Watsa Referral Hospital by the Deputy Governor of the Province Orientale region of the DRC, Mr Dieudonne Arama. The total value of both shipments is US$1.7 million, according to Randgold Resources which has spearheaded the campaign. The Governor of the Province Orientale region, Mr Medard Autsai Senga, and Randgold Resources chief executive Mark Bristow handed over today's shipment.

North American financial services provider BMO Capital Markets co-sponsored the medical provisions which were sourced, packed and freighted to the area from Nashville, Tennessee, by the US medical charity C.U.R.E.

The supply of medical provisions to clinics is part of Randgold Resources' community development strategy which focuses on projects providing basic health, potable water, basic education and food security to the communities close to its operations in Central and West Africa. It has identified the upgrading of local clinics and hospitals as a key priority and is collaborating with medical charities and local healthcare authorities to deliver crucial medical equipment and supplies to village clinics in these areas.
