Hungary’s latest donation of 400,000 coronavirus vaccines to Ghana has arrived in the country, Péter Szijjártó wrote on Facebook.

The Foreign Minister stated that we can prevent the emergence of new variants if we help less-vaccinated countries. Hungary has contributed to the success of managing the pandemic in Africa with the 2.5 million doses it has provided to the continent thus far, he claimed.

The Hungarian government has donated a total of 3.8 million vaccine doses worldwide, of which Ghana has received 800,000. On Wednesday morning, President János Áder traveled to Ghana and Kenya for an eight-day official state visit.

Hungary’s head of state will visit the Newill Academy school in Koforidua, which was renovated through the “Hungary Helps” program, while in Kumasi he will visit a sewage treatment plant previously built by a company called Pureco through Hungarian experts.

According to the Office of the President of Hungary, no Hungarian head of state has visited these two countries since the change of regime in 1989.
