- KFOR’s Slovenian contingent belonging to the Italian-led Regional Command West delivered face masks to a kindergarten in the municipality of Istok, to improve the protection of educators and pupils against Covid-19. Slovenian Soldiers also donated school items for children from all communities.
Personal protective equipment and infrared thermometers were provided by Slovenian soldiers also to the Serbian Orthodox Church Monastery of Visoki Decani, where KFOR‘s Regional Command West soldiers act as first security responders. The Monastery is recognized by UNESCO
as a World Heritage site and is the only site under the protection of the NATO-led operation.
Both Slovenian initiatives were finalized also thanks to Regional Command West’s Civil Military and Liaison and Monitoring Teams.
Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 KFOR has been impartially supporting the local response to the pandemic, by providing direct assistance and by facilitating the delivery of assistance to the Institutions in Kosovo by NATO Allies and Partners on bilateral basis, like, Germany, Italy, Poland, Turkey and Austria.
