IAG Cargo has donated four pallets of blankets and sleeping bags to help keep Kenyan school children in Nairobi warm this winter.
Working with humanitarian organisation The Order of Malta, and Blankets4Africa, which works with charities to distribute blankets to those in need, IAG Cargo collected over 400 cabin blankets and 150 crew sleeping bags, which travelled 4,255 miles from London to Nairobi to keep children warm this winter.
IAG Cargo chief executive officer, Drew Crawley says: “We understand the difference these blankets can make during the cold months and knowing that they will be put to good use to those who need them most really resonates with our staff.” “We have reached out to both our airline and trucking partners to make this shipment possible and are extremely thankful for all of the support given.”
Sister Maria Rosa at Amani na Wema Children’s Home adds: “We express our immense gratitude for your support to our orphanage through you donation of blankets. We depend on donations such as these, as all of our children have lost their parents and depend on support received by donors.”
