The Ambassador spoke on Tuesday on the occasion of the handover ceremony for the extension of the rehabilitation centre at 44 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital Kaduna.

Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to Nigeria, Mrs Birgitt Ory has said that Nigerian soldiers wounded in combat would be supported with state-of-the-art prostheses and post-traumatic care.

The Ambassador spoke on Tuesday on the occasion of the handover ceremony for the extension of the rehabilitation centre at 44 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital Kaduna.

The health facility was meant for personnel suffering from post-traumatic injuries and disabilities.

Represented by  Lt.Col Jens Gliman, Commander of the German Technical AdvisoryTraining Group, GTAG, the Ambassador said that the rehabilitation centre was completed under the auspices of the Equipment Aid Programme of the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany,

“Through this Programme, Germany is partnering with selected countries in Africa to improve peace and security on the continent. The support is taking a quite practical shape, with support in the fields of logistics, maintenance and medical care, among others,” she said.

While acknowledging that Nigeria’s one of Germany’s partner countries and had witnessed the establishment of substantial cooperation between the Armed Forces and German Bundeswehr, she explained that the rehabilitation centre was one of a kind medical facility and the benefits of the centre went far beyond offering medical care.

“In fact, what is offered here is a path towards a future for soldiers who suffered a physical disability. The facility is not only open to soldiers but also to affected civilians.
