THE United States (US) Southern Command has donated US$37,600 worth of personal protective equipment (PPE) through the US Embassy Port-of-Spain to the Ministry of Health which include disposable KN95 masks and coveralls.
Chargé d’Affaires Shante Moore presented the equipment to Minister of Health Terrence Deyalsingh on Monday at the Ministry of Health’s Port of Spain office.
In a release on Wednesday, Moore said, “The global Covid-19 pandemic has spared no country and I am honored to represent the American people in extending our solidarity and support to all Trinbagonians. I know that together, we will do the work to defeat Covid-19 and start to build back better.
“What do I mean by build back better? I mean strengthening the ties between friends and allies, strengthening our health infrastructure and systems, strengthening our economies to improve opportunities for our people,” the Chargé d’Affaires said.
Deyalsingh thanked the United States Government for its continued assistance and partnership with the Ministry of Health.
