The German Government is supporting the global efforts to fight the pandemic to the tune of 2.2 billion euro. Most of this sum is going to the vaccine platform COVAX, which is procuring and financing vaccines for developing countries.
The COVID‑19 pandemic is more than a global health crisis: its economic, social and humanitarian impact is dramatic too. German missions around the world are helping people in need in their areas.
When people think about humanitarian assistance, they tend to think of the distribution of tents and flour, but often other things are needed – children’s shoes or mattresses. Therefore, Germany is increasingly focusing on cash payments to strengthen local markets and give people greater freedom.
Namibia is suffering greatly from the COVID-19 pandemic. Germany is sending aid supplies worth approximately 11 million euro to the region. The second flight landed yesterday.
