Airlink, a humanitarian relief organisation that connects airlines with NGOs, jumps into action following the deadly cyclone Idai which made a second landfall on Thursday night near Beira City, Mozambique.
The cylcone brought with it widespread devastation including heavy rains and flooding. Two hundred people are confirmed dead with hundreds more injured or unaccounted for across Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi.
Airlink is working with NGO and airline partners to support the response in all three countries. “Our focus is on transporting relief workers and emergency supplies to provide clean water, repair shelters, give medical care to survivors, and provide other critical assistance as people and communities recover,” the organisation says.
Airlink is a humanitarian relief organisation that connects airlines with vetted NGOs to assist communities in crisis worldwide.
Airlink’s unique model brings together skilled humanitarian actors, commercial aviation assets, and the power of both individuals and companies in the aviation industry as a collective force for good.
“Through the collective expertise of Airlink’s staff and partners throughout the aviation and air logistics industries, we’re solving challenging supply chain issues that arise from humanitarian emergencies. Ultimately, this allows NGOs to deploy their response personnel and material aid quickly, efficiently, and at low cost,” Airlink says.
