STATEMENT BY THE UNDP AT THE OCCASION TO INAUGURATE THE UNDP-SUPPORTED SOLAR POWER Sep 17, 2013On behalf of the United Nations Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative, Alberic Kacou and the UNDP Country Director, Philippe Poinsot, I wish to thank you for this opportunity to be a part of this historic occasion to inaugurate the Mbingu Missionary Health Centre.
