Emergency aid arrives at Kyrgyzstan

Much more aid is now on its way. It will be distributed by UNICEF, other UN agencies and local partners, through programmes that are quickly being established throughout the city.

Through the border crossing with neighbouring Uzbekistan, a long-awaited convoy of UN trucks has brought in tonnes of supplies. For its part, UNICEF sent eight trucks containing 40 metric tonnes of aid for refugees who returned from Uzbekistan to southern Kyrgyzstan last week. The governments of both countries provided a safe corridor for the UN humanitarian convoy to travel across the border and into Osh – the worst affected region of Kyrgyzstan.

The UNICEF shipment included health and hygiene essentials, including medicines, treatment kits for diarrhoea, and nutritional and vitamin supplements for children.
