The former President of Botswana Ian Khama has donated two million vaccines to the Republic of Botswana.
Through his SKI Khama Foundation, the former president secured two million doses each of Oxford-Astra-Zeneca and Pfizer BioNTech Covid 19 vaccines for Botswana.
“In its quest to save lives and relieve Batswana from the ravaging Covid 19 pandemic the SKI KHAMA FOUNDATION has through its network of international partners secured two million doses each of Oxford-Astra-Zeneca and Pfizer BioNTech Covid 19 vaccines for Botswana,” said Khama in a statement.
The vaccines are available to the country immediately upon submission of a purchase order and an end-user-certificate, both of which must come from the government of the receiving country as per established procedures and protocols for the acquisition of Covid 19 vaccines.
The SKI KHAMA FOUNDATION was able to secure the vaccines through the KKM Global Group LLC from manufacturers based in the United States of America.
KKM Global Group LLC is a multidisciplinary health services group with a global reach for sourcing and procurement.
“We have been reliably informed that the Group has been supplying various Covid 19 related medical supplies to the government of the United States and several government health agencies in the Middle East,” said the Foundation in a statement.
However, theoffer of both Oxford-AstraZeneca and Pfizer-BioNTech to SKI KHAMA FOUNDATION for Botswana is valid for only “five business days”.
