Container with tools arrives in Nigeria

SOMIC donates tools

A generous donation by the company SOMIC Verpackungsmaschinen GmbH & Co. from Amerang builds the base for Efe’s auto repair shop in Benin City.

The donated machines and tools were shipped via container from Germany to Nigeria. The goods travelled for a long time and were delayed even further by the COVID-19 pandemic. The risk of infection is high for people aboard, not only on cruise ships but also on cargo ships. Therefore, many ships initially stayed in the harbour.

When the ship with the tool container finally entered the Nigerian harbour city Lagos, the unloading took a long time as well.

Fortunately, the transport from Lagos to Benin City was quick and Efe finally received his boxes. Now, he can start to set up his new shop.
