  • Description

    DURING A BRIEF VISIT TO ANGOLA, 34 MEMBERS OF A MIXED CIVILIAN AND MILITARY MISSION FROM THE UNITED STATES, LED BY US AIR FORCE COLONEL WILLIAM E. MACDONALD, WERE SHOWN AROUND CAMBAMBE, ON THE RIVER DUEANZA, MAR 31.

    ACCOMPANIED BY THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION AT CAMBAMBE DAM, DR. RUI DE ALMEIDA, AND OTHER LEADING PORTUGUESE REPRESENTATIVES IN THE TERRITORY, THE AMERICAN MISSING SAW A MODEL OF THE CAMBAMBE IRRIGATION PROJECT, VISITED THE DAM AND TOURED TECHNICAL INSTALLATIONS.

    TWO AND A HALF THOUSAND EUROPEANS AND MORE THAN THREE THOUSAND ANGOLANS ARE WORKING ON THE HUGE PROJECT. AMONG THE FACILITIES FOR THIS COMMUNITY, WHICH INCLUDES THE FAMILIES OF MANY OF THE MEN ENGAGED IN CONSTRUCTION WORK, IS A BIG MULTI-RACIAL HOSPITAL.

    BEFORE CONCLUDING THEIR VISIT TO CAMBAMBE, THE AMERICANS WENT SIGHT-SEEING IN THE RUINS OF THE CHURCH OF OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY, ONE OF THE HISTORICAL MONUMENTS OF PORTUGUESE COLONISATION IN THE INTERIOR OF ANGOLA.
