The US Embassy in Greece on Monday donated personal protective equipment to the Hellenic Police, to help keep them safe as they protect and serve.

The supplies, which include 15,000 gloves and 8,200 face masks, were personally delivered by US Ambassador to Greece Geoffrey Pyatt to Chief of the Hellenic Police Lt. General Michael Karamalakis.

Pyatt stated that the supplies were “purchased locally through funding provided by US European Command, and is one more demonstration of our commitment to work together with Greece to overcome the Covid-19 global pandemic and builds on our long tradition of outstanding cooperation with the Hellenic Police and Citizen Protection Ministry.”

Karamalakis thanked the US ambassador and said that the donation “constitutes an active recognition of the continuing effort made by our personnel during the difficult times that have been caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.”
