U.S. Ambassador to Kosovo Philip S. Kosnett, joined by acting Minister of Health Arben Vitia, officially launched the partnership between USAID and UNICEF Kosovo on April 23.  This partnership aims to help the families and institutions that are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic through the provision of necessary basic hygiene kits, including detergents, soap, wipes, etc. 

The kits are part of the $1.1 million U.S. assistance package, provided through USAID, to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak in Kosovo.  UNICEF, in cooperation with the Kosovo Ministry of Health and Red Cross Kosova, will distribute these kits on behalf of the American people to families across Kosovo, including minority municipalities.  #Inthistogether
