We Transported Aid to Africa

Here at Turkish Airlines we are continuing to take important steps as part of our commitment to social responsibility.

On Monday August 8 and Thursday August 11, we transported close to 115 tons of Turkish Red Crescent, Ministry of Religious Affairs, and Turkish Cooperation and Development Agency aid materials to the needy in Somalia on three Turkish Cargo planes.  Sent with Turkish Airlines support, these aid packages will be distributed to people in the Somali capital Mogadishu, bringing smiles to the faces of 1,500 families. Among the 115 tons of aid were baby food, powdered milk, baby crackers, chickpeas, lentils, rice, dried beans, sugar, oil and salt as well as toys sent by concerned Turkish children for their counterparts in Somalia. We continue to support efforts to bring aid to the needy in Somalia via Turkish Airlines and Turkish Cargo.
