- Advertisment -

The World Health Organization (WHO) lauds UAE for its humanitarian efforts towards African countries amid fight against the spreading of the new coronavirus.

UAE has been providing medical and protective supplies to African countries.

“I would like to thank the African Union, the governments of UAE and Ethiopia, the Jack Ma Foundation and all our partners for their solidarity with African countries at this critical moment in history,” Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of WHO, said.

He further commended the country for its generous support of this operation.

“WHO’s regional logistics hub in Dubai has played a key role in making sure these supplies are prepared and shipped to where they are most needed. This is by far the largest single shipment of supplies since the start of pandemic and will ensure that people living in countries with some of the weakest health systems are able to get tests and treatment, while ensuring that health workers on the frontlines are properly protected,” he added.
