Pakistan Makes a Huge Donation to the US to Fight COVID-19 Pandemic

Pakistan has sent a planeload of surgical masks and protective suits to the United States as a goodwill gesture. Donated by the armed forces, a C-130 aircraft carrying the donation of personal protective equipment arrived in Andrews Air Base in Washington DC on Thursday.


The donation was received by Acting Assistant Secretary of Defense for Indo-Pacific Security Affairs, David Halloway.

Pakistan’s envoy to the US, Asad Majeed Khan, and other staff of the embassy were present at the airport.

The US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, appreciated Pakistan’s goodwill gesture in a tweet.

He termed the delivery of PPEs a symbol of solidarity between the two countries in the war against the virus.

Pompeo’s appreciation was well-received by the US Mission to Washington, Asad Majeed Khan, who said that both countries have always worked together in common interests and to counter common challenges.

  • We are importing PPEs and then giving it as a gift to the economically most powerful country of the world. The better option will be African or any middle eastern country.
    This is becoming a joke of the century. Our own Doctors are buying from their own pocket and local people are dying but “Lekin aaka ko khush rakhna hay”.

  • Word cloud for laughing stock:
    just 1 plain load for a country worst hit by covid with around 2000 deaths per day
    PPE imported or sub standard
    surgical masks, quality unknown
    own country needs it more than US
    C130 aircraft, made and donated to paf by US
    yet v hav the face to make such “donations” as “GOOD will gesture”
