That was during a handover ceremony held yesterday at the Ministry of Health by an official delegation comprising two Egyptian ambassadors in a bid to strengthen bilateral relations between the two countries.

The Egyptian Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mona Omar, and the Egyptian Ambassador to Seychelles, Kadri Abdel-Mottaleb, were accompanied at the ceremony by the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Jean-Paul Adam.

Speaking at the event, Ambassador Omar described the donation as a token of friendship and said she hoped both countries would continue to stand beside each other and support one another in times of difficulty.

“I would like to say that we had some talks with the Minister for Foreign Affairs, and we are intending to promote the bilateral relations between our two countries and create new mechanisms to enhance the existing very good and friendly relationship between our two populations,” said Ambassador Omar.

After officially receiving the medicines on behalf of the Ministry of Health, Designated Minister Vincent Meriton, who is also the Minister for Social Affairs, Community Development and Sports, said Seychelles has already benefitted a lot from the support received from Egypt in terms of training and technical help.

“I wish to thank you for the display of love, humanity and solidarity during our time of need, when we were struck by the January 2013 disaster, and let me reassure you that all the consumables donated will be put to good use for the benefit of the health of the people of Seychelles,” he said.
The medicines donated include painkillers, anti-inflammatories, antibiotics and intravenous fluids.
