USAID and UNICEF ensure additional support for families in need during COVID-19

Ambassador Kosnett’s Remarks for Launching Event with UNICEF, April 23, 2020


Minister Vitia, Murat, colleagues and friends, I am honored to be part of this launch event today.
The United States has partnered with UNICEF in Kosova to help the families and institutions that are on the front lines of this battle. These kits are part of the $1.1 million USAID assistance package to Kosova. UNICEF, in cooperation with the Ministry of Health and the Red Cross Kosova will distribute these kits on behalf of the American people to families across Kosova.
We all know that the best way to fight this pandemic together is to stay safe and stop the spread. The hygiene kits we are providing today will allow Kosova families, including the most vulnerable, to protect themselves against the virus, and their overall health.
Only a unified international response is effective against this global threat. Together we can defeat COVID-19.
