13 Jul EUTM Mali supports the Malian Army Museum
On Tuesday, July 11, during a small ceremony in the Army Museum, a delegation of MHQ EUTM Mali handed over 2 containers for conserving the archives of the Malian armed forces. The director of the museum was very grateful and explained that the gift, worth 22 million FCFA, will help young officers to prepare their entrance tests as well to encourage them to spend time in the museum’s library.
The ceremony concluded with a visit of the containers and the new library of the Army Museum
The museum was founded in 2006 and is ever since looking for help to restore the exhibited objects. In November 2016, German soldiers within EUTM Mali started a project for addressing the museum’s most essential needs. In December 2016, EUTM Mali already donated computers, printers, overhead projectors and training tools for the staff members of the museum.
The museum is open from Monday till Friday, 8AM till 4 PM and the entrance is free
