US Embassy Hands over Donation of Medical Equipment

Deputy PM for European Affairs Bujar Osmani and Health Minister Venko Filipce accepted on Wednesday from US Ambassador Kate Marie Byrnes a donation of medical equipment provided by the US. “Today we are here to accept only one part of the assistance in amount of 1 million dollars provided to us by the US for combating the COVID-19 crisis. This donation mainly consists of medical equipment like face masks, gloves and protective suits, which will be handed over to medical workers all over healthcare institutions in our country. We thank the US for this donation,” Osmani said, expressing hope that the good cooperation with the US through the US Embassy in Macedonia, as well as the other US agencies like USAID, will continue in future. Filipce thanked Byrnes for the donation, saying that this equipment will be very helpful for the healthcare workers to protect themselves from COVID-19 while working.
