October 12, 2020: As part of Lufthansa Cargo's intensified commitment to the 17 sustainable development goals of the United Nations, in cooperation with Lufthansa Technik, the B777F with the name "¡Buenos días México!" was given a special livery. In addition to the logo of Cargo Human Care founded by Lufthansa Cargo employees and the slogan "Step by step. Giving children a future", portraits of Kenyan children living in the orphanage "Mothers' Mercy Home" operated by Cargo Human Care also decorated the modern cargo aircraft. These were drawn by Franka Doyen, a founding member of the aid project.

Ever since the Cargo Human Care was founded 13 years ago, the freight crane has been supporting the organisation's sustainable aid in Kenya.

"Social commitment has always been part of Lufthansa Cargo's DNA. With the new motifs on the freighter, we are not only continuing our commitment to support Cargo Human Care, but also the United Nations' sustainable development goal 'No Poverty'," explained Lufthansa Cargo chief operations officer Harald Gloy.

Fokko Doyen, president of Cargo Human Care and flight captain at Lufthansa Cargo, said, "Cargo Human Care is a matter of heart not only for me but also for many colleagues. I am very proud that we now have a new ambassador who carries Cargo Human Care around the globe.”

Cargo Human Care has been supporting people in Kenya, giving them access to education and medical care. In addition to an orphanage, the organisation runs a medical centre, two primary schools, a youth centre and a training workshop for leatherworkers. Already in 2015, a Lufthansa Cargo MD-11F also bearing the name "¡Buenos días México!" was provided with a special livery for Cargo Human Care. After the aircraft was phased out in March as part of the rollover to a more efficient freighter fleet, the latest "Triple Seven" in the fleet is now taking on the task of carrying the mission of Cargo Human Care around the world.
