​Funds collected on the Rock through transcribing COVID passes used to purchase ambulance for Liberia

An EU NGO has used funds raised here in Gibraltar to donate an ambulance in Liberia.

EEA International is an EU worldwide community of volunteers. Here on the Rock, many got to know them when they stepped in to transcribe GHA COVID passes to be compliant with those needed in EU countries earlier this year.

Volunteers were transcribing codes for a fee, with the money raised going towards EEAI's charitable initiatives.

Now, with the funds collected through those transcriptions in Gibraltar, they have been able to deliver an ambulance and training to some in Liberia.

Our reporter, Shelina Assomull, spoke to EEAI Medical Director, Lars Stuewe.
