The King Salman Center for Relief (KSrelief) and Humanitarian Action delivered a new batch of medical aid to the sisterly Republic of Tunisia today, following King Salman’s directions.
The supply includes 40 tonnes of liquefied oxygen, out of a total of 200 tonnes planned in the next days, to help the Tunisian health sector meet its needs and combat the impacts of the Corona pandemic (Covid-19).
His Excellency the Tunisian Minister of Health, Ali Merabet, the Saudi Ambassador to Tunisia, Dr. Abdulaziz Al-Saqer, and a group of officials were at the vanguard of my aid recipients.
Tunisian Health Minister Ali Merabet extended his profound gratitude to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the medical assistance rendered to the Tunisian people in a message to the Saudi Press Agency.
He stated that this aid is on its way, and that the world is on the verge of a new health disaster, emphasising the need of this assistance in meeting Tunisia’s needs in the face of the epidemic.
After the devastating wave that Tunisia experienced in recent months, the Tunisian minister indicated that the country’s health status is now rather comforting.
He emphasised the importance of Saudi medical aid, which has been arriving in Tunisia since July, in dealing with the crisis and providing care for thousands of injured people, which has helped to reduce the number of victims.
This is part of the Kingdom’s medical and preventive assistance to many countries across the world, intending to assist international efforts to combat the Corona virus and lower its risks.
