Operation Atalanta Spanish Warship Relampago Donates Equipment to a School In DjiboutiOctober 26, 2016 - 10:37
During her port visit to Djibouti earlier this week, sailors from Spanish warship, ESPS Relampago, visited a school Couvent de la Nativité, directed by Franciscan Missionaries of Notre Dame.
The Spanish sailors were shown around the school and introduced to the children. The school is funded by the Catholic Church of Djibouti and individual donations.
The commanding officer donated money which had been collected by ‘Caritas Castrense’ and ‘Asociacion Nuestra señora del Carmen’, two religious associations in Spain. As well as the money donation, the Spanish crew also gave school materials, such as pencils and books, which were donated by students of Colegio de Huerfanos de la Armada, a Spanish Navy school in Madrid.
After the visit, Relampago returned to sea to start her counter-piracy patrols with Operation Atalanta to deter pirate attacks and help ensure seafarers remain safe.
