'Dear compatriots! I express my deep gratitude to all the organisations, companies, individuals and legal entities that voluntarily made transfers to the the Fund to Support Fight Against Coronavirus, created by the decree of the President of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev on 19 March 2020, to strengthen the preventive steps and measures to combat coronavirus in our country.' This is stated in the address of the First Vice-President of Azerbaijan Mehriban Aliyeva.

'Of course, this is a continuation of the charitable traditions inherent in the Azerbaijani people, and, at the same time, an indicator of the unity and solidarity of our people. The fact that you were not indifferent to the problem that your country was facing and joined the appeal of President Ilham Aliyev is a step worthy of very high praise. This indicates a feeling of mercy and compassion in modern Azerbaijani society. In the name of protecting the health of an Azerbaijani citizen, I also join this initiative and donate the annual salary of the First Vice-President of Azerbaijan to the Fund to Support Fight Against Coronavirus.

I express my gratitude to all those, who voluntarily transferred funds to the Fund to Support Fight Against Coronavirus, and urge all compatriots to demonstrate solidarity and civic responsibility and seriously comply with the recommendations and requirements of the Operational Headquarters under the Cabinet of Ministers,' Mehriban Aliyeva said in her address.
