Proof that the cargo sector is pulling its weight and that other stakeholders are getting involved is evidenced by the news of a PPE delivery to Africa.
The Solidarity Fund took delivery of a consignment of personal protective equipment which arrived in South Africa as part of its health and humanitarian intervention to provide much-needed PPE for front line health workers.
The delivery was made possible by a partnership between the Fund, South African Airways (through its cargo division) as well as fuel suppliers BP and Total who donated jet fuel. The collaboration helped to reduce overhead costs, thereby enabling the Fund to optimise resources and direct spend towards the critical equipment.
The Chairman of the Solidarity Fund, Gloria Serobe said: “We are grateful for this partnership as it embodies the Fund’s principle of unity in action. It is further proof of what can be achieved when different stakeholders come together and contribute their expertise for the benefit of a shared objective.”
