Airbus relief flight to Uganda
The Airbus Foundation has used an A330 test aircraft to transport 100 cbm (17 t) of relief equipment and specialized water and sanitation equipment from East Midlands airport (UK), to Entebbe (Uganda). The goods are destined to assist the increasing number of refugees escaping the deteriorating conflict situation in South Sudan.
The humanitarian mission was organized jointly between the Airbus Foundation, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), as well as the British and Uganda Red Cross Societies. (ah)
