Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) has sent several shipments of urgent medical aid to Congo, Albania and Angola to support their efforts to contain the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

The 25-tonne shipments, which Qatar Airways delivered, included medical equipment and supplies such as masks and personal protective equipment for medical staff.

QFFD director general Khalifa bin Jassim al-Kuwari said: “This medical assistance reflects the great efforts made by Qatar to combat the spread of this pandemic globally, which comes as a matter of joint global responsibility."


It is worth noting that QFFD provided urgent medical aid to several brotherly and friendly countries including Iran, Italy, Lebanon, Tunisia, Algeria, Nepal and Rwanda, with shipments totalling more than 85 tonnes.
