Farewell to Dr Kadjassi

After 13 years with URBIS FOUNDATION TOGO, Dr. Bâ-Traoré Kadjassi, who was responsible for the health sector, retired. Over the years, we have greatly expanded this sector. It all started with a request from a small health station that wanted to provide medicines for the less fortunate.
