US pledges $15 million to help Pakistan curb coronavirus

ISLAMABAD  – In wake of the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the United States is expanding its partnership with Pakistan to alleviate poverty in the country, the US Ambassador Paul W. Jones said.

In a video message released on Thursday on US Mission Pakistan’s social media platforms, Ambassador Paul W. Jones said, “I’d like to highlight how together we (Pakistan and the US) are protecting those most vulnerable to the economic fallout from Coronavirus.”

He announced a new American contribution of $5 million to support Pakistan’s Ehsaas Emergency Cash Program and a $2.5 million therapeutic food program for children diagnosed with acute malnutrition.

Since designating Pakistan a priority Country for the Coronavirus assistance, the United States has committed nearly $15 million in new funding to Pakistan.

All of these contributions were identified as top priority needs by the Pakistani authorities, and they are fully funded by the American people.
