Greece donates hundreds of thousands of Covid vaccines to Africa
In November, Greece donated 200,000 doses of the Covid vaccine to the African nation of Gabon, during the tour of the country’s Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias in sub-Saharan Africa.
A few days earlier, Greece donated over 150,000 doses of the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine to Ghana.
The donation is expected to augment the ongoing Covid-19 vaccination exercise in Ghana and help the government achieve its target of reaching 20 million people with the life-saving vaccine.
Handing over the consignment at the Kotoka International Airport in Accra, Dendias said the donation is “an expression of solidarity of Greece in Ghana and its people. Greece actively supports Ghana in fighting the pandemic.”
He added that it is important for countries to share their resources so together they can win the fight against the pandemic.
“This is our contribution to your effort to tackle the pandemic that affects us all. If we do not share our resources globally, we will not be able to deal with it.”
