Thailand Donates Medical Equipment to Nepal to Fight COVID-19

May 29, 2021


Thailand has donated 46 oxygen concentrators for the treatment of COVID-19 patients in Nepal.

Deputy Permanent Secretary for Foreign Affairs Dusit Manapan on 24 May 2021 presided over the handover ceremony of the medical equipment at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Bangkok. Attending the ceremony on behalf of the Government of Nepal was Ambassador of Nepal to Thailand Ganesh Prasad Dhakal.

The oxygen concentrators were donated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on behalf of the Royal Thai Government, the Thai Overseas Dhammaduta Bhikkhus to India-Nepal, the Royal Thai Monastery in Lumbini, the Sathira-Dhammasthan Foundation, and the Verapuchong Foundation.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, all the oxygen concentrators were transported to Nepal by air freight on 28 May 2021.

Earlier this month, the Thai Overseas Dhammaduta Bhikkhus to India-Nepal, the Royal Thai Monastery in Lumbini, and the Sathira-Dhammasthan Foundation had donated 17 oxygen concentrators, which were transported to Nepal on 14 May 2021.

The donation of oxygen concentrators to Nepal is part of Thailands humanitarian efforts to help Nepal, a country that has religious and cultural ties with Thailand.

The medical equipment will help Nepal combat and mitigate the spread of COVID-19, which has caused a shortage of necessary medical supplies in Nepal. The donation reflects the warm and cordial ties between Thailand and Nepal, as well as the close bonds of friendship between the two peoples.
