Nepal. Italian Cooperation’s humanitarian flight to combat Covid-19 in the country

At the instigation of the Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Marina Sereni, an Italian Cooperation humanitarian flight departed yesterday from the United Nations Humanitarian Response Depot (UNHRD) in Brindisi to Kathmandu airport with a cargo of six tonnes of medical supplies for the fight against COVID-19.

The humanitarian cargo, made available by the organisation of the Special Commissioner for the COVID-19 emergency, General Figliuolo, consists of lung ventilators, gloves and protective suits and will be delivered to the Ministry of Health and Population of Nepal. The operation has been possible thanks to the collaboration with the Civil Protection Department, within the framework of the EU Civil Protection Mechanism.
