The Polish government has allocated a total of PLN 56 million (EUR 12.3 million, USD 13.5 million) for humanitarian projects in various nations hit by the virus, according to data cited by Deputy Foreign Minister Paweł Jabłoński.

More than half of this amount has gone to help poor countries and people particularly vulnerable to COVID-19 through humanitarian organisations with which the Polish foreign ministry has been working for years, Jabłoński said at a news conference on Tuesday.

Poland has helped finance projects in countries such as Georgia and paid for medical care received by Syrian refugees in Lebanon and Jordan, he added.

Poland has also contributed to assistance projects provided internationally by organisations such as the United Nations and the European Union, and financed projects carried out by Polish embassies around the world, according to Jabłoński.

These included sending humanitarian convoys to destinations such as Belarus, Spain and the Vatican, he said.

In total, Polish humanitarian aid has reached 50 countries as the coronavirus sweeps across the globe, Jabłoński told reporters.
