Australia has donated over 1,500 kilogrammes of COVID-related medical and personal protective equipment as humanitarian assistance to Cambodia to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
The handover ceremony took place here last weekend under the presidency of H.E. Gen. Moeung Samphan, Secretary of State, Ministry of National Defence and H.E. Pablo Kang, Australian Ambassador to Cambodia.
Among the consumable items were over 20,000 gloves, 50,000 masks, 3,800 bandages and 10,000 COVID test kits, the Australian Embassy pointed out.
“This medical equipment handover reinforces Australia’s commitment to supporting Cambodia’s future development, including its health and economic recovery from COVID-19 and our bilateral defence cooperation,” the embassy stressed.
This delivery is the final tranche of several deliveries from Australia that have occurred this year, and includes PPE, COVID test kits, patient monitors, an oxygen concentrator, and ventilators, the same source added.
