AIA Cargo assists in movement of AID to Haiti

AIA Cargo has assisted in sending up to 23 tons of UK aid to Haiti that will help assist the international aid effort in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew.

Cargo from the UK government’s Department for International Development (DFID) includes a first consignment of UK aid arriving in Haiti today containing shelter kits for 5,000 people. Cargo that left Gatwick Airport today and further aid to arrive in Haiti over the coming days includes temporary shelters, equipment to purify and carry safe drinking water and solar lights to reach 12,500 of the most vulnerable people, including women and children.

The aid is being sent over a number of flights with Thomson Airways.

The latest UK support is in addition to ongoing work DFID has been undertaking in Haiti before the storm to better prepare the country for natural disasters to ensure aid could quickly reach 10,000 of the most vulnerable people

AIA Cargo General Manger for Europe Mark Andrew says “AIA is proud to have taken part in this relief effort. Haiti is a place close to our hearts having teamed up this year to help provide a new roof for a local charity The Mango Tree Village.  Mango Tree Village which was started in the wake of the 2010 earth quake provides shelter, food & water, medical attention, clothes and an education for the orphans of Haiti.  We wish to thank all the staff at Thomson, WFS and the Department for International Development who assisted in the seamless lift of this vital cargo from the UK.”
