The UAE has sent an aid plane carrying eight tonnes of medical supplies and COVID-19 testing kits to Namibia.

The humanitarian initiative will assist nearly 8,000 medical professionals in the African nation's fight against the pandemic.

To date, the UAE has responded to the COVID-19 crisis by providing over 1,100 tonnes of aid to 75 countries, which has supported more than one million frontline workers.

"The UAE continues to support development in African countries and meet their needs in furtherance of the UAE’s leading humanitarian role in assisting friendly countries, especially in times of crisis," said Mahash Saeed Al Hameli, UAE Ambassador to South Africa and Non-Resident Ambassador to Namibia.
