Lifesaving supplies delivered to conflict-ridden southern Kyrgyzstan

UNICEF delivered forty tonnes of much needed emergency supplies to the tense and divided city of Osh in southern Kyrgyzstan today.

An operations centre has also been established at the airport in Osh to handle a massive airlift of supplies in the pipeline.

UNICEF’s Representative in Kyrgyzstan, Jonathan Veitch, said flights would be arriving daily all this week.

Today’s supplies consist of eight obstetric kits, emergency health medicine for treating of 10,000 children with diarrheal diseases, as well as vitamins and micronutrients for children. They were provided to the main hospital in Osh.
