The aid, initiated by Foreign Affairs Minister Miroslav Lajčák, will be provided from the Interior Ministry’s reserves.

“It concerns tents, beds, blankets, lighting, towels, generators, sinks and toilets as equipment for field hospitals,” the ministry said, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

The consignment will be delivered by a lorry to the Netherlands, from where it will be further shipped to Guinea.
