The office of the First Lady of Rwanda, Jeannette Kagame, received a donation of medical supplies from the First Lady of the People’s Republic of China, Professor Peng Liyuan, to assist Rwanda in the fight against #COVID19, especially among vulnerable groups.
The donation, handed over by Ms. Xing Yuchun, Political Counselor in the Chinese Embassy in Rwanda, was received by the advisor to the First Lady of Rwanda, Radegonde Ndejuru, and the Director of the Rwanda Biomedical Center (RBC) Dr. Sabin Nsanzimana.
Radegonde Ndejuru told Taarifa on Tuesday evening that the supplies included facemasks and thermo-cameras and that the Office of the First Lady is grateful for the support from her Chinese counterpart.
Ndejuru said that the First Lady is also playing her part in supporting the ministry of health in dealing with the current coronavirus pandemic.
Ndejuru also said that the donation is part of what the Chinese First Lady has offered the Organization of African First Ladies for Development (OAFLAD).
Other First Ladies will also receive their designated supplies.
