The United States has increased COVID-19 related funding for Ukraine by $1.8 billion.
“Earlier this month, the United States announced an increase in COVID-19 related funding for Ukraine, from $15.5 million to nearly $17.3 million. The newest funding of nearly $1.8 million will support the International Organization for Migration’s activities in eastern Ukraine, supporting internally displaced persons and other conflict-affected populations,” the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine said on Facebook on July 14.
It says with the funding, IOM will help prevent the spread of COVID-19 through provision of humanitarian assistance, support for isolation and treatment centers, health and hygiene programs, and more.
“The United States continues to stand with Ukraine in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic and its consequences,” reads the report. (UNIAN/Business World Magazine)
