Canada has donated $500,000 to the United Nations Development Program in Egypt (UNDP Egypt) for the purchase of urgently needed COVID-19 diagnostic equipment, the Canadian embassy said on Tuesday.

According to the embassy’s short statement on its social media accounts, the procurement is intended to fill key gaps identified by the Egyptian Ministry of International Cooperation and the Ministry of Health and Population.

The UNDP has already launched with local NGOs the campaign Kemama (Facemask) to raise funds to provide facemasks for citizens in Upper Egypt.
