During nearly 4 years, the evacuation of patients to reference healthcare facilities was a major concern. Because the ambulance that the general hospital had, is useless.

"She paves the way for people to a better future," he says. And Mrs Brou Rosalie, an executive secretary added that it was difficult to evacuate the sick for lack of ambulance. Some were evacuate on a motorcycle, others by renting vehicles. This initiative is beneficial, she affirms. This problem of medical evacuation, is also a matter raised through testimonies in Bocanda. Where the only ambulance of this department called upon to save lives such as pregnant women, anemia cases, is highly required.

Therefore, the sub-prefecture of Bengassou, in the department of Bocanda has recieved an ambulance. The wife of the Presidenthas also offered equipment to Bocanda and Kouassi-Kouassikro hospitals.
