A Gesture Of PAK-US Solidarity – US Thanks Pakistan Army For Donating PPEs

Pak Army PPE US

These are tough times for everyone. And the only way to get through these times in good spirit is by helping those that need our support and help the most. In this spirit, our Pak Army has extended hands in helping the US fight COVID-19 by donating them PPE supplies.

Surgical masks and protective suits

The PPE including surgical masks and protective suits was sent to the United States through a C-130 plane. These surgical supplies were handed over to the Senior US officials at the Andrews Air Base in Washington DC. Officials of Pakistan armed forces and diplomatic corps were there to do the honors. Gestures like these have always made amends with sore friends, and Pakistan is not the one to step back from taking the higher road.
