Humanitarian aid flown to Horn of Africa

August 3 - Chapman Freeborn Airchartering's worldwide offices are involved in the effort to transport humanitarian relief supplies to help people affected by famine in the Horn of Africa.

n the last ten days the global aircraft charter specialist has overseen the delivery of hundreds of tonnes of relief cargo from Europe and the Middle East on behalf of charities and international aid agency clients.

Aid cargo has been flown into airports including Nairobi, Addis Ababa and Mogadishu utilising full and part charters onIL-76B767 and B747 aircraft.

The flights were among the first to reach the region with consignments of biscuits high in protein and energy, as well as kitchen sets and temporary shelter for refugees.

Chapman Freeborn's German office also coordinated a charter on behalf of Humedica, a German-based international aid organisation. Over 30 tonnes of milk powder and medicines were flown from Munich to Nairobi on a DC-8 freighter.

The worst drought in East Africa in 60 years has affected more than 10 million in Kenya, Ethiopia, Djibouti and Somalia. The UN has already declared a famine in several parts of Somalia - the first in the region this century.
