ACS AND SPANISH RELIEF AGENCY WORK TOGETHER TO DELIVER 17 TONS OF AID INTO ZIMBABWE

1 January 2009

Zimbabwe, a country that is already under strain is now faced with an outbreak of cholera. In a country hit by hyper inflation rendering what little food there is unaffordable; five million people are now thought to be in need of food aid. An outbreak of cholera has put further strain on dwindling medical resources, and a failing water supply has left many vulnerable.

Air Charter Service worked alongside a Spanish relief agency to fly aid into Zimbabwe. Richard Thompson cargo charter analyst assisted the Spanish Red Cross in chartering an IL-76 aircraft to take aid, including the following, medical supplies/equipment, all terrain truck, 4x4 vehicle, rations and body bags, from Torrejon Air Force Base to Harare.

In total 17 tons of cargo was delivered to help relieve the suffering of the tens of thousands hit by the cholera epidemic sweeping the country.

ACS work with a number of relief agencies who have come to value the quick thinking and extensive knowledge of ACS account managers to find the quickest most cost effective charter solution.
