The second shipment of medical aid sent by the State of Qatar, through the Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD), has arrived in the brotherly Islamic Republic of Pakistan, in support of the efforts made by Pakistan to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

The shipment includes 3.4 tonnes of medical aid, which is a supplement to a previous batch sent by QFFD, which included 50 oxygen devices and medicines to tackle the coronavirus pandemic.

The shipment was received at the Karachi airport by a number of members of the Embassy of Qatar in Pakistan, and officials from Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

In a statement on the occasion, Director General QFFD Khalifa bin Jassim Al Kuwari stressed the importance of this assistance to complement the great efforts made by Qatar to combat the repercussions of the pandemic, which has had a major impact on the world and created many difficulties at all levels. “Based on the common international responsibility, the State of Qatar is at the forefront to contribute to the process of confronting this pandemic and addressing it.”

He also stressed the effective role played by Qatar, under its wise leadership, in assisting brotherly and friendly countries and its effective contribution to helping the affected countries to stand again from the effects of the pandemic, limit its spread and prevent it.

Ambassador of Qatar to Pakistan H E Sheikh Saoud bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, affirmed that out of its humanitarian duty and in view of the distinguished fraternal relations between Qatar and Pakistan, the State of Qatar has been keen from the beginning to provide assistance to the Pakistan government in order to support its efforts to combat the COVID-19, and to protect the brotherly Pakistani people from this pandemic.

He added: “This is not the first time that the State of Qatar has provided aid to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, as the government and people of Qatar have stood alongside the Pakistani government and its people in natural disasters such as floods and earthquakes. He said Qatar will spare no effort to continuously send aid to friendly and brotherly countries all over the world until this epidemic ends."

The Ambassador also highlighted the role played by Qatar in helping brotherly and friendly countries since the beginning of the pandemic to face its repercussions and mitigate its spread, stressing the permanent solidarity and cooperation between the two brotherly countries, the strengthening and enhancement of the deep and distinguished relations and the close ties between them.
