The Egyptian Armed Forces on President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s orders dispatched four military airplanes carrying urgent medical supplies to Sudan on Monday, helping it grapple with the coronavirus outbreak.
A video from the armed forces explained that this aid will help the Sudanese government provide medicine and protective supplies such as masks and antiseptics to combat the outbreak Sudan is facing.
This act reinforces the historical bond the two nations share and Egypt’s leading role in Africa during times of crisis.
Sisi in April ordered medical aid be delivered to the US, as part of Egypt’s plan of support friendly countries and within the broader framework of historical ties between both nations
The General Command of the Armed Forces prepared a military plane loaded with large quantities of medical aid and protective suits.
This aid aims to ease the US’s burden in light of the crisis it faces through alleviating the nation’s acute shortage of medicine, medical supplies, and protective tools.
And earlier in April, Egyptian presidential spokesperson Bassam Rady announced that Sisi sent two military planes to Italy with medical supplies to provide aid.
Minister of Health and Population Hala Zayed also arrived in Italy on April 4 upon President Abdel Sisi’s orders.
According to Rady, this move comes out of Egypt’s plan of solidarity with friendly countries.
Following President Sisi’s directives, the armed forces loaded two military aircraft with medical supplies, protective suits and disinfection materials.
The government also sent in April two military planes to Italy with medical supplies to provide aid in light of the crisis Italy faces through alleviating the nation’s acute shortage of medicine, medical supplies and protective tools.
