The UAE has responded to the Covid-19 crisis by providing over 1,000 metric tonnes of aid to 70 countries.

A UAE aid aircraft carrying five metric tonnes of medical supplies was sent to Lima, Peru to bolster the country's efforts to curb the spread of Covid-19.

This aid will assist approximately 5,000 medical professionals as they work to contain the virus.

"The dispatch of a medical aid plane today to Peru shows that UAE's assistance can reach any part of the world. It also reflects the belief of our wise leadership that we live in a single world where efforts and potential must be united," said Jassim Saif Al Shamsi, Chargé d'Affaires at the UAE Embassy in Lima.

"The UAE's assistance to Peru reflects the strength of the enduring relations between the two countries that embody constructive cooperation and consensus at all levels."

To date, the UAE has responded to the Covid-19 crisis by providing over 1,000 metric tonnes of aid to 70 countries, supporting more than one million medical professionals in the process.
