The African Union (AU) recognized Africa Humanitarian Action (AHA) for its “contribution and solidarity in the fight against Ebola”.
A recognition plaque was presented by the current Chairperson of the AU, H.E. Mr. Idriss Deby Itno, President of the Republic of Chad and by Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma Chairperson AU Commission, to AHA’s Founding President, Dr. Dawit Zawde, during the closing ceremony of the African Union’s 26th Summit in the presence of African Heads of States on 31 January 2016.
