ANPG and Azule Energy inaugurate nursing home in Malanje

The National Oil, Gas and Biofuels Agency, Azule Energy and the partners of block 18 (Sonangol and Sinopec) inaugurated, this Wednesday, in Malanje, the renovated Maxinde Home for the Elderly.


The reconstruction of this infrastructure, under the responsibility of the NGO RISE and supervised by the company Incatema, began in 2021 and was delivered this Wednesday to its direct users, with the presence of those responsible for the provincial government, ANPG and Azule Energy, refers to a statement from the ANPG sent to VerAngola.

According to the note, the home – which was rebuilt in order to improve the reception of its users – has 21 rooms with the capacity to accommodate 40 elderly people, an administrative area, common and service areas including a jango, infirmary, pharmacy, cafe, living room seating and green spaces.

The total cost of the work, which was borne by ANPG, Azule Energy and partners in block 18, amounted to one million and one hundred thousand dollars.

The vice-governor, Angelino Kissoma, representing the governor of Malanje, Marcos Alexandre Nhunga, thanked the entities that made this rehabilitation possible, and conveyed to the users of the home that they will soon receive a personal visit from the head of the province, absent only for unavoidable agenda reasons.

"Today ended the dream we dreamed of and that we passed on to those who supported us with seriousness, will and commitment from the first moment. And today we also begin a new reality here, which can and should be replicated in other places, and which such a good result brings to the Home for the Elderly of Caxinde, which now has conditions to prolong the lives of our fathers and mothers with the care to which they are entitled," he said, quoted in the statement.

The executive director Gerson Santos, representing the chairman of the Board of Directors of ANPG, Paulino Jerónimo, was visibly satisfied with the conclusion and delivery of the work, as it was intended for a section of the population that was not always supported and was indeed in need.

"When, two years ago, the National Agency for Oil, Gas and Biofuels received for approval the proposal for the rehabilitation of the Maxinde Home for the Elderly, within the scope of social responsibility financing for block 18, we did not think twice. And today, finally, we have the pleasure of witnessing a new beginning in the history of the province of Malanje, with the reconstruction of the emblematic home for the elderly, here in the Maxinde neighborhood, entirely funded by the bonus of block 18/BV, which is constituted by the ANPG , by Azule Energy, by Sonangol and by Sinopec, in an investment of one million dollars", emphasized Gerson Santos.

The same official also made a point of noting that "this is yet another contribution from the oil sector, in alignment with the Angolan Government and its partners, with a view to improving the quality of life of citizens and their communities, and that in this This particular case also includes ongoing funding for the preservation of local biodiversity, namely in terms of protecting the giant sable, a rare species in the world".

In turn, Hélder Silva, director of Government Affairs and External Relations at Azule Energy, stressed that the company is "proud to support, through this initiative, the efforts of the Government of Angola to improve the living conditions of the Angolan population, namely the most vulnerable communities , for having a committed and long-term relationship with Angola, as well as with its global development".

Hélder Silva also underlined that "Azule Energy, a company committed to supporting the sustainable development of Angola, will continue to work closely with its partners to boost the positive and sustainable development of the country".
