National Airlines and Brother's Brother Foundation partner in delivering humanitarian aid for Ukraine

U.S.-based Brother's Brother Foundation (BBF) partners with National Airlines to ship humanitarian aid to different regions in Ukraine via Poland. The 17 tons of aid, which includes sleeping bags, quilts, clothing, generators, and other additional items were distributed among military hospitals and rehabilitation centres for injured soldiers in Kyiv, Lviv, and Vinnytsia areas.

"We are deeply grateful for the leading initiative by Brother's Brother Foundation in organizing the much-needed support in the region. National has been actively partnering with several organizations and governments to deliver timely humanitarian aid and relief to the crisis hit regions over the last three decades," remarked Christopher Alf, Chairman, National Air Cargo Holdings Inc.

 In a well-orchestrated mission, teams from both organizations coordinated airlift of the aid and relief items from the U.S. to Poland on National Airlines B747-400F aircraft. Later, the National Air Cargo global teams took the needed initiative for the final mile coordinating customs requirements and shipment transportation to different crisis hit Ukrainian cities via specially designated trucks.

The safe and timely delivery of the aid further helped support military personnel deeply impacted by medical emergencies due to the sustained conflicts in the regions.

The team's commitment and responsiveness to the humanitarian crisis is truly commendable," exclaimed Ozzy Samad, President, Brother's Brother Foundation.
