Cargolux donates US$3.8m to Ukraine humanitarian efforts

2022 03 08


LUXEMBOURG's flag carrier cargo airline Cargolux is to donate EUR3.5 million (US$3.8 million) to support humanitarian efforts arising from the war in Ukraine.

The airline said the monetary assistance follows the UN's emergency appeal for $1.7 billion to urgently deliver humanitarian support to people in Ukraine and those who have fled the country in search of safety and protection, reports London's Air Cargo News.

Cargolux said it will donate EUR1 million each to UNICEF and the UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, as well as EUR500,000 to Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF). An additional EUR1 million will be distributed amongst initiatives by local organisations and communes at Cargolux's home base.

"It is with great regret that we witness the unfolding of this conflict. We hope that our donation will positively contribute to the relief efforts underway in Ukraine and at the borders of those countries where people are arriving to seek refuge in the EU," said Richard Forson, president and chief executive of Cargolux.
