Turkey sends medical aid to coronavirus-hit UK



A Turkish aircraft carrying medical aid for fighting the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.K. left from the capital province of Ankara on Friday.

Including face masks and protective overalls, the aid packages were sent from Etimesgut Military Airport with a special note quoting 13th-century Islamic scholar Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi, who passed away on 17 December 1273 in Konya, then a city in “Turkey Seljuk State”, currently a province in central Turkey. His words translates in English as: “Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure.”

It is reported that another medical delivery is expected to be made to the U.K. on Saturday as well.

Previously, Turkey provided medical aid to countries such as Italy, Spain, North Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo.
