Malaysia has sent medical equipment to our friends in Palestine to help them in their fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
According to Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, who shared the news through a post on his Facebook page, the care package was chartered on an AirAsia plane to Palestine through Jordan on 10 May.
It includes one million units of masks, 500,000 units of gloves and 500 units of face shields. Hopefully, these contributions from Malaysia can help the people of #COVID19. InsyaAllah.Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein via Facebook (Translated from BM)
