Famine and ongoing conflict in the South Sudan have created food shortages and cut off access to critical services like medical care and supplies. Airlink, in partnership with International Medical Corps, reached out to Flexport.org for assistance in moving relief cargo from London to Juba, South Sudan.
“Airlink is practiced in humanitarian logistics, but the current circumstances in South Sudan make it incredibly difficult to safely transport relief cargo into the region,” says Airlink Humanitarian Programs Manager Stephanie Austin. “Our partnership with Flexport helps us work on these more complex airlifts and ultimately expands Airlink’s capacity.”
The first shipment Flexport.org coordinated with Airlink was 1500 kg of medical supplies in August, 2018.
