Brahima Coulibaly, Director of Communications to Mrs. Dominique Ouattara, First Lady of Côte d'Ivoire has explained the reasons that led the wife of the Head of State to provide an ambulance to the health center of Koyekro. He revealed that the First Lady was moved to learn the drama that women and children of this community live. "Mrs. Dominique Ouattara decided to offer this ambulance that never pregnant women die because they could not be evacuated in time, and that sick children die because they could not be evacuated in medical centers, "he explained to the populations. In this area of cocoa production, Brahima Coulibaly took this opportunity to raise awareness about the need to fight against child labor. Reminding that Mrs. Dominique Ouattara has made the fight against this phenomenon a priority, he invited the populations of Koyekro to enroll in the dynamics of the fight against child labor. "Mrs. Dominique Ouattara decided to get involved in the fight against child labor. She sent me to tell you that the place of children is in schools and not in the plantations. Your children can naturally help you as part of the work said to be socializing. (…) But they must not do anything likely to harm their health or even hinder their healthy development, " Brahima Coulibaly said. Continuing, the emissary of Dominique Ouattara called on Koyekro women to adhere to the Support Fund for Côte d'Ivoire Women (FAFCI). To this end, he revealed to them that the fund is available at the COOPEC of Tiassalé to enable them undertake income-generating activities.
