Palestinian Ambassador galvanises support to fight COVID-19


Mr Abdulfatah Alsattari, the Palestinian Ambassador to Ghana, has called on individuals and organisations around the world to help alleviate the ill effects of COVID-19 on the vulnerable.

This is because the pandemic, besides its health implications, also had social, economic, and other effects on mankind, which required an all hands on deck approach.

Mr Alsattari said this in an interview with the Ghana News Agency on Thursday after he launched the “Special Food Sharing by the People of Palestine in Ghana” project.

The project seeks to assist the less-privileged during the month of Ramadan to minimise the effects of the COVID-19 crisis.

Mr Alsattari said the Embassy collaborated with a number of Palestinians within the country for the launch, which saw the distribution of assorted food items to over 50 families, chosen from a number of communities within Accra.

He said the Palestinian Community in Ghana would continue to support the people and Government in every way possible to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic and its unpleasant effects.

“The people of Palestine believe that the world is one big family, and in times like this, the greatest service we can offer each other is to help so far as we can,” he said.

The Ambassador thanked the Government and people of Ghana for the long standing friendship and that the time had come for Palestine to show kindness to a good friend and neighbour.
