Thanks to a donation from the Spanish Army, framed as a member State in European Union Training Mission Somalia (EUTM-S), it was possible to equip Somali trainees of 2nd “Flame” Company and “Train the Trainers” Course, with new boots for completing the hardest part of training in the best conditions.

The delivery, which took place on 28th of October at the General Dhagabadan Training Center (GDTC), where the EUTM-S Training Team conducts daily training for Somali National Army (SNA) personnel, involved 135 trainees who appreciated the supply as many of them had no boots but flip flop.

This is a clear example of how, through bilateral initiatives, Member States can support Somali National Army thus supporting and consolidating the value and the image of the Mission in Somalia.
