All our activities in Ivory Coast
The Ivory Coast is a former French colony and has been independent since 1960. Until the early 90s it was an example of economic development and political stability for all African countries. On the death of President Felix Huophouet-Boigny, who led the country for 32 years, bitter fighting broke out for ethnic and religious reasons. After a series of attempted coups d'état the rebels took control of the northern part of the country, predominantly Muslim, while government forces have maintained control of the South, predominantly Christian. The Ivorian economy, which is based on cocoa - of which it is the first producer in the world - has suffered a strong backlash after the fall of market prices, and has been in a period of recession ever since 1999. The condition of the Ivorian children greatly deteriorated during the years of internal conflict. Regular attendance at school was blocked both in the north as in the west of the country, and access to health care has declined due to the destruction of many hospitals and the difficulty of ensuring a regular supply of medicines needed.Moreover, the Ivory Coast holds the sad record of the highest rate of patients infected with HIV in west Africa (Unicef Sources).
Side by side with the CFIC, Dokita has been present in the capital city of Abidjan for a couple of years with an educational programme for orphans and the children living in very particular social surroundings.
