SEOUL, June 1 (Yonhap) -- The government will provide 25,000 face masks to independence fighters and their family members living overseas to help them fight the new coronavirus, the veterans affairs ministry said Monday.

About 500 independence fighters or their bereaved families living in 15 countries will receive the masks, along with a letter from Patriots and Veterans Affairs Minister Park Sam-deuk thanking them for their sacrifice for the country's liberation from Japan's 1910-45 colonial rule, ministry officials said.

Earlier, the ministry also delivered masks to 150 descendants of independence fighters living in China, Korean War veterans in 22 countries, and Navajo veterans who fought in 1950-53 Korean War in an expression of gratitude for their sacrifice.
