April 18, 2019: Qatar Airways in association with Airlink has transported 19,000 pounds of relief material to Mozambique and neighbouring countries, which is fighting to recover from the devastating effects of Cyclone Idai.
The aid transported for MedShare and Save the Children, which included hygiene kits for women and girls and medical supplies, departed John F. Kennedy Airport in New York on April 17.
For Airlink partner Save the Children, the organisation's support is helping to provide families with basic necessities as they recover from the physical and psychological impacts of the crisis.
“By generously providing transportation for relief supplies, Airlink is enabling Save the Children to get these critical items to those families and children who need it most, as quickly as possible,” said Carolyn Miles, president and CEO of Save the Children.
Prior to this flight, Airlink has transported 30,000 pounds of supplies and 47 relief workers responding to the disaster. Cash donations from Airlink supporters and assistance from Kenya Airways, South African Airways, and United Airlines made those flights possible.
