Team Europe and the United Nations have handed over the second consignment of medical supplies to the Government of Nigeria. This second consignment is part of the $22m procurement of essential medical supplies for the COVID-19 response, funded by the EU and endorsed by the Nigerian authorities in the framework of the One UN COVID-19 Basket Fund to which the EU contributed €50m ($60m).
The shipment consists of over 270 cubic metres of thousands of PPEs and hundreds of other sets of medical supplies that will provide adequate healthcare for those affected by the virus but also, and almost more importantly, protection for the heroic frontline medical staff.
