Description

In 2007, Chinese Vice-Premier Wu Yi called on a group of 100 Africa-bound experts and volunteers to provide good service to their African hosts, the group consists of 58 agricultural and 16 malarial experts sent to 30 African nations. 26 of these volunteers were sent to work in education and medical services in Mauritius, Tunisia, and Eritrea. The status of the workers is uncertain.

Additional details

This project was left ODA-like since the Vice-Premier made an announcement for the volunteers. There is no information on which organization or government-sponsored the volunteer program, but AidData assumes it is ODA-like because of the government's approval of the program.
