Children in Côte d'Ivoire to be evacuated from the capital Abidjan
February 25 2011
25/02/2011 - The situation in Côte d'Ivoire is becoming increasingly threatening. Due to heavy fighting and prevailing insecurity especially in Abobo, a suburb of the main city Abidjan where an SOS Children's Village is located, the decision was made to evacuate the children and SOS mothers to the SOS Children's Village in Aboisso today, some 110 kilometres east of Abidjan. If the situation deteriorates further, the evacuation of all children to Togo must be considered.
