The Armed Forces General Command has ordered the departure of a plane carrying medical and humanitarian aid to the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The aid was sent on Wednesday upon the directives of President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi to provide large quantities of medicine and medical equipment from the Egyptian Ministry of Health.

The shipment is part of Egypt's continued support to its brotherly states in facing up to all challenges and crises besetting them, according to an official statement.

Such a step also reflects strong ties between Egypt and the Democratic Republic of the Congo and proves Cairo’s leading role in helping African countries and providing them with all needed support, the statement said.
