I'm very pleased with the opportunity to visit this centre: it's a great project. And it's very important for the European Union to cooperate with Africa in general, and with Rwanda in particular, to develop this difficult ambition. We think in Europe that climate change and digital ambition are the two top priorities. We would also like to develop our alliance between Africa and the European Union. This is a very concrete project, a very interesting and useful space to make networks possible. We have decided to invest to develop the same kinds of projects in other cities, not only in Kigali, but in other cities in Rwanda. We will cooperate closely with the Rwandan authorities to ensure that we can develop and strengthen this very strong digital ambition. COVID-19 is a big challenge for the world. We won't be safe until everyone is safe. That's why it's a top priority for the European Union to work with our partners in Africa, and in Rwanda. And I was very pleased that, on behalf of the European Union, we support these Covax facilities and this Covax programme. Through this programme, which is now effective, we are able to deliver the doses, and we are working to make sure that we can administer the vaccines. And also effective support yesterday with the visit to a health centre in Rwanda, which was very impressive, because we could observe there is a strong commitment to make sure that we are able to implement the vaccination campaign, which is a key for the future. The next weeks and the next months will be very important, and we intend at European level to continue all our efforts with all our partners, to make sure that with the vaccines we are able to defeat COVID-19. And it is important at economic level because this crisis also has economic and social consequences. That's why it is very important to make sure that we are able to return to a normal life as soon as possible, and a more normal economic activity, to provide goals, economic development, innovation, and to improve the social situation everywhere.

LSNN is an independent editor which relies on reader support. We disclose the reality of the facts, after careful observations of the contents rigorously taken from direct sources, we work in the direction of freedom of expression and for human rights , in an oppressed society that struggles more and more in differentiating. Collecting contributions allows us to continue giving reliable information that takes many hours of work. LSNN is in continuous development and offers its own platform, to give space to authors, who fully exploit its potential. Your help is also needed now more than ever!

In a world, where disinformation is the main strategy, adopted to be able to act sometimes to the detriment of human rights by increasingly reducing freedom of expression , You can make a difference by helping us to keep disclosure alive. This project was born in June 1999 and has become a real mission, which we carry out with dedication and always independently "this is a fact: we have never made use of funds or contributions of any kind, we have always self-financed every single operation and dissemination project ". Give your hard-earned cash to sites or channels that change flags every time the wind blows , LSNN is proof that you don't change flags you were born for! We have seen the birth of realities that die after a few months at most after two years. Those who continue in the nurturing reality of which there is no history, in some way contribute in taking more and more freedom of expression from people who, like You , have decided and want to live in a more ethical world, in which existing is not a right to be conquered, L or it is because you already exist and were born with these rights! The ability to distinguish and decide intelligently is a fact, which allows us to continue . An important fact is the time that «LSNN takes» and it is remarkable! Countless hours in source research and control, development, security, public relations, is the foundation of our basic and day-to-day tasks. We do not schedule releases and publications, everything happens spontaneously and at all hours of the day or night, in the instant in which the single author or whoever writes or curates the contents makes them public. LSNN has made this popular project pure love, in the direction of the right of expression and always on the side of human rights. Thanks, contribute now click here this is the wallet to contribute
