Paul Jones, United States (US) Ambassador in Pakistan in his message on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr felicitated all Pakistanis on the completion of the holy month of Ramadan.

He also announced a new US contribution of $6 million to strengthen Pakistan’s response to Coronavirus.

“As you prepare special Eid dishes for your families in your kitchens like my favourite desserts, Kher, I would like to congratulate Pakistanis on the completion of Ramadan on behalf of all of us at the U.S. Mission to Pakistan,” he said in a video message.

He said he has always been impressed with the incredible generosity of Pakistanis who give to the less fortunate, especially during Ramadan and Eid occasion.

“The US-Pakistan health partnership against coronavirus has kept growing during Ramazan and into Eid.

The United States just added another $6 million in new funding, including from our Centers for Disease Control, to strengthen Pakistan’s response by expanding training for health workers who take care of patients in hospitals with severe cases, preventing the spread of coronavirus in healthcare facilities, and providing a fourth mobile lab to test and treat Pakistanis living in virus hotspots,” he announced.
