The First Lady then visited the Medical Centre and the Lycée Roger Gouteyron school. At the Medical Centre, Dr Regine Mabiala Lamoureux, Head of the Shell Yenzi Clinic, provided Sylvia Bongo Ondimba with an overview of the important work carried out by Shell Gabon as part of efforts to improve the healthcare system in Gamba.

The First Lady was therefore able to see first-hand the priority given to healthcare as part of Shell Gabon’s sustainable development policy, as demonstrated by the infrastructure refurbishments, the provision of medical equipment, developments in the management of the hospital work and staff training. Sylvia Bongo Ondimba then met some of the staff members and patients and was pleased to find out that the Gamba Medical Centre now has all the necessary amenities to be able to provide local residents with high-quality services.

At the Lycée Roger Gouteyron school, the First Lady received a very warm welcome from the pupils. Social Performance Manager Armelle Zague then gave a presentation on Shell Gabon’s efforts and investments aimed at improving education for young people, including the various different types of support that the company continually provides for teachers, students and administrative staff.

After applauding Shell Gabon’s social commitment, Sylvia Bongo Ondimba then had a meeting with P-DG Godson Njoku before her visit drew to a close. In a relaxed environment, he was able to provide an overview of Shell Gabon’s operations. The First Lady then left Gamba for Omboué, the last stop in the “Pink October” campaign in the province of Ogooué-Maritime.
