Egypt sends medical aid to South Sudan

The Armed Forces General Command has ordered to prepare a military aircraft laden with large quantities of medical supplies to be sent to South Sudan to help it counter coronavirus, in light of the successive crises suffered by the young African country.

The move comes upon directives from President Abdel Fattah El Sisi.

The shipment includes large quantities of medications, medical supplies, sanitizers, personal protection equipment and baby formula.

The aid proves Egypt’s leading role in assisting African countries and asserts cooperation relations and historical ties binding Cairo and the African states.
