Our goals in Angola and what we were able to achieve

From 1992 - 1998, Cap Anamur conducted a demining project after years of civil war (during a lull in the war). At the time, Angola was one of the most heavily mined countries in the world.

  • Buried in the soil of Angola were Soviet, American, Cuban, South African, Czech, Chinese, and even GDR mines. The team of specialists cleared thousands of mines, sometimes with heavy armored equipment, but mostly with mine detectors and painstaking manual labor.

In 2002, the civil war that had been going on since 1975 ended and Cap Anamur dedicated itself to rebuilding medical care in the southwest of the country - in the Kunene region. During the 27 years of military conflict, the economy, trade, infrastructure and, above all, supplies for the population had completely collapsed.

In the first project phase until 1998, Angola was still divided in two during the civil war. The hospital in Bailundo was on the side of the UNITA rebels at the time. To supply the project, we had to pass the frontline. This, again, was only possible in UN-controlled crossings.

1. location Xangongo
  • The hospital was equipped with medical equipment in 1992.
2. location Cahama
  • Reconstruction and operation of a hospital from 1993 – 1996 and 2003 – 2007.
3. location Oncocua
  • Reconstruction and operation of a hospital from 1993 – 1996 and 2003 – 2011. Cap Anamur has sent medical professionals to train the local staff and support the operation of the hospital.
  • Cap Anamur has been in charge of 13 health care stations in Kunene Province to provide comprehensive medical care.
  • Since a large part of the population and especially the nomadic peoples were excluded from schooling, a boarding school was operated. 150 children of the nomadic tribes were educated there.
  • At the Oncucua hospital, Cap Anamur founded a training project for metalworkers in 2009. Here, school graduates from the boarding school were trained in metalwork.
4. location Bailundo
  • The district hospital in Bailundo was served by Cap Anamur from 1995 – 1997. The hospital, which has 250 beds, a 100-bed TB clinic and an 80-bed leprosy clinic, was renovated and structurally expanded.
  • Medical care was provided by dispatched medical professionals and we equipped the hospital with needed equipment.
