On 4 August 2023, a handing over ceremony for procured equipment 20 units of 4WD Ambulances was held in the city of Luanda, Angola.
The ceremony was attended by Minister of Health of the Republic of Angola, Ms Silvia Lutucuta, and Ambassador of Japan to Angola Mr SUZUKI Toru.

In Angola, the availability of treatment facilities for individuals affected with the novel coronavirus is confined primarily to urban locals. The dearth of medical service accessibility, particularly within rural regions inhabited by a substantial impoverished demographic, stands as an exigent concern.
This programme is anticipated to make a substantial contribution towards the enhancement of Angola’s infectious disease management protocols and the fortification of its healthcare and medical systems, achieved by means of furnishing 4WD Ambulances.
