TIKA Supports Lesotho’s Fight against COVID-19
Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TÄ°KA) provided protective equipment and hygiene products to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Relations of the Kingdom of Lesotho in order to fight against COVID-19.
As part of the project, personal hygiene products such as masks, gloves, and disinfectants; fumigation machines and solution used to clean buildings; and the necessary protective clothing, which were believed to contribute greatly to the fight against COVID-19 as the Omicron variant spreads rapidly in South Africa, were delivered with a ceremony attended by Ms. Matá¹¥epo Ramakoae, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Relations of Lesotho; Ms. AyÅegül KandaÅ, the Republic of Turkey’s Ambassador to Pretoria; and Abdulkadir Abukan, TÄ°KA’s Coordinator in Pretoria.
In her speech at the ceremony, Ms. AyÅegül KandaÅ, the Republic of Turkey’s Ambassador to Pretoria, underlined that TÄ°KA implemented projects in the fields of agriculture, education, women’s empowerment, and infrastructure, as well as the fight against the pandemic, in Lesotho.
Ms. Matá¹¥epo Ramakoae, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Relations of Lesotho, also delivered a speech and said that this support was an indication of the ongoing good relations between the people of Turkey and Lesotho, just as other TÄ°KA projects and Türkiye Scholarships.
