We sent UNICEF humanitarian supplies to Haiti

As a strategic partner of UNICEF Spain and with logistical support from IAG Cargo, we flew a first shipment of supplies to the Caribbean country to help alleviate the current situation there

It's a new milestone in the alliance between UNICEF Spain and Iberia, within the framework of the global agreement between UNICEF and Amadeus, because it marks the beginning of a new form of collaboration that harnesses the knowledge and experience of the airline's logistical teams, fleet and commercial routes to benefit children and vulnerable people.

In this first shipment we transported nine high-performance tents, which are extremely versatile in humanitarian emergencies like the current one in Haiti because they can be used as classrooms, health clinics, nutrition points or counselling centres. For example, with a floor area of 72 square metres, each tent can accommodate a school for 20 to 30 pupils and address the need that always arises in emergency situations to create safe spaces children and their families.
