Poland sends protective gear to Western Balkan states
A convoy of seven fire trucks with Polish aid for Western Balkan countries affected by the coronavirus epidemic has reached its unloading point in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Polish State Fire Service tweeted on Monday.
The transport of over 70 tonnes of protective clothing, including 600,000 surgical masks and more than 60,000 litres of disinfectant liquids set off from Warsaw last Tuesday.
The aid for Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Kosovo, Northern Macedonia and Serbia was organised by Poland's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Interior and Administration and the Ministry of Climate as part of the "Balkans 2020" mission, through the International Solidarity Foundation.
The mission involves 14 firefighters from the Polish State Fire Service.
