King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) sent medical aid including ventilators to Togo to help with the country’s fight against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
The non-resident Saudi Ambassador to Togo Mishaal bin Hamdan Al-Rouqi, handed over the aid shipment to Togolese Minister of Health Professor Mustafa Mujiyawa, in the capital Lomé.
The Togolese Minister of Health extended his sincere thanks to Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud for the valuable humanitarian aid.
He applauded the Saudi efforts to support the needy people in his country and several countries across the globe to battle the COVID-19 pandemic.
This comes within the framework of the Kingdom’s aid efforts under the KSrelief, to support the international efforts to limit the spread of the coronavirus.
Since the pandemic started KSrelief sent aid shipments to several countries across the globe. When India was suffering from oxygen shortages, 80 tons of oxygen were shipped from Saudi Arabia amid a devastating surge in coronavirus cases.
“Our sincere thanks to the Ministry of Health in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for its help, support and cooperation,” the embassy tweeted.
In April, India’s hospitals overcrowded with coronavirus infections are experiencing oxygen shortages. In a bid to ease the crisis, the government has deployed military planes and trains to deliver oxygen from the far reaches of the country to Delhi.
The Indian embassy added that it is securing 5,000 other medical oxygen cylinders from Saudi Arabia.
