NATO partners show solidarity with Moldova in the fight against Covid-19 pandemic
Kęstutis Kudzmanas, Ambassador of the Republic of Lithuania to the Republic of Moldova, handed over to the Moldovan representatives a donation of protective equipment from NATO, consisting of 25,000 disposable suits for biological protection on February 24, 2021.
“On behalf of NATO, and of the NATO Liaison Office in Chisinau, its official representation, I would like to convey a strong message that NATO Allies stand in solidarity with the Republic of Moldova in response to the COVID-19 pandemic”, said Ambassador.
Today’s ceremony took place in front of the Municipal Clinical Hospital for Children “Valentin Ignatenco”, where the shipment from NATO is stored but the much needed medical suits will be distributed to other medical institutions across the country.
The value of the medical items handed over to the Republic of Moldova is 300,000 USD. This comes from NATO’s Pandemic Response Trust Fund with the financial contributions from Luxembourg and Norway.
