Together with the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs’ Crisis and Support Centre (CDCS) the Airbus Foundation sent 7 tons of medical equipment from Toulouse, France to Kathmandu, Nepal using an A350 Airbus test aircraft. The relief equipment, provided by the CDCS, the French Ministry of Health and Visière Solidaire, consisted of masks, protection glasses, respirators as well as antigen tests.  The aid will help the Government of Nepal in their management of COVID-19 within the country.

“The situation in Nepal is still critical, and we remain committed to supporting the country’s fight against COVID-19 with the resources available to us,” said Rachel Schroeder, Director of the Airbus Foundation. “I am grateful that we could support our partner to bring this humanitarian mission to the people of Nepal. We hope our contribution brings relief to the affected.”

The aircraft arrived in Kathmandu on 2 June departing from New Delhi where it had also delivered medical equipment to further boost the efforts to tackle the second wave of Covid-19 infection in India.
