RUS Aviation to support Pakistan relief efforts

posted on 13/09/2010: 826 views


RUS Aviation, the UAE based aviation service provider, has pledged its support to the Pakistan relief operation by offering free transportation of United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) cargo to the flood affected areas.

The WFP, which is one of the largest providers of humanitarian relief material to disaster affected regions around the world, has been at the forefront of relief efforts in Pakistan during the floods that have ravaged the country and have left over 2 million people homeless.

"This national disaster in Pakistan has caught the world's attention to an extent that has not been seen before. As an organisation that has been involved in some large cargo movements, we could not just stand and be onlookers," said Saleh Al Aroud Managing Director, RUS Aviation.

"With WFP's outreach into the most remote areas of Pakistan which have been extremely challenging, we felt the right synergy. We had all the logistics, transportation and supply chain in place and we are glad that this partnership worked out well," he added.

WFP will transport hundreds of tonnes of relief material in several separate cargo movements. RUS Aviation sent one aircraft to Karachi-Pakistan and will continue to transport other cargos to different cities in Pakistan which are some of the worst hit areas. In 2007 only, WFP delivered 3.3 million metric tons of food to 86 million people in 80 countries. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
