A UAE aid plane loaded with large quantities of coronavirus vaccines has landed in Damascus airport.
The shipment was coordinated by the Syrian Red Crescent Organization and comes as part of the UAE’s global response to combat the spread of the virus and strengthen prevention measures. It aims to assist frontline medical workers, the elderly, people with chronic diseases, as well as displaced people, and those living in refugee camps.
This is the second Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) aid plane to arrive in Damascus loaded with coronavirus vaccine doses to help Syria fight the pandemic.
In coordination with the Syrian Red Crescent Organization, the ERC previously sent a medical aid shipment weighing 97.2 tons to Syria, which included medical supplies, personal protection equipment, and testing kits, which enhanced the capacities of medical teams, and frontline workers.
