The British government through its High Commission in Ghana on Thursday, December 7, donated 8 ambulances to the Ghana Armed Forces at a ceremony at Burma Camp in Accra.
The vehicles were presented to Vice Admiral Seth Amoama by UK's Minister for the Armed Forces James Heappey and the British High Commission to Ghana Harriet Thompson.
The gesture is a demonstration of bilateral collaboration and commitment to strengthening the UK-Ghana security partnership to help improve Ghana Armed Forces' medical outreach in the northern border regions.
The event was witnessed by representatives of the UK government and senior officers from the Ghana Armed Forces, showcasing a collaborative effort to bolster peace and security in Ghana's northern regions.
The ambulances are equipped with state-of-the-art technology to aid the Ghana Armed Forces in their medical operations under the UK-Ghana Civilian Military Cooperation Programme.
“We are proud to contribute to Ghana Armed Forces' capacity to protect and serve its civilians in the 5 Northern regions to counter violent extremism, and we will continue to foster long-lasting partnerships through our annual security dialogue”.
The UK continues to work closely with the Ghana Armed Forces to support Ghana's leadership position in the sub-region and to strengthen the capability of Ghanaian security services to take the lead in responding to instability in the region, particularly those related to that of violent extremists emanating from the Sahel.
