UNMIK has completed its second phase of a Kosovo-wide donation campaign, delivering personal protective equipment packages to all municipalities totaling: 1381 pairs of gloves and 2000 masks, as well as 387 tablet computers.
After an initial two-week donation drive of health and hygiene packages and 3D printers in May, the latest deliveries took place throughout this past week across Kosovo and to the Basic Court of Pristina, with representatives receiving the packages from UNMIK personnel whilst respecting safety measures - as Kosovo continues to battle the global pandemic.
Due to global shortages and supply chain interruptions, the equipment took longer to arrive in Kosovo than anticipated. However, Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of UNMIK Zahir Tanin said persistent efforts to procure the materials paid off and would still reach Kosovo residents at a critical time.
