Ethiopian Completes Distribution of Jack Ma's 2nd Donation to Africa
Ethiopian Airlines has completed the flight and delivery of the second round shipments of life saving medical supplies to fight COVID-19 donated by Jack Ma to all African countries.
The airline expressed its complements and the highest appreciation to the Jack Ma Foundation, our Prime Minister H.E. Dr. Abiy Ahmed, WFP and the African CDC for giving it the opportunity to serve Africa during this unprecedented global health and economic crisis.
As a truly and indigenous Pan African airline which has been serving Africa by Africans, there is nothing more pleasing for the 17,000 strong work force at Ethiopian Airlines than coming to the rescue of our African people specially in delivering lifesaving COVID-19 medical supplies.
It is to be recalled that Ethiopian successfully delivered the first round of donation of Jack Ma and Alibaba Foundation to African countries, which was initiated by Ethiopian Prime Minister, Dr Abiy Ahmed.
Thanks to the established capacity of Ethiopian Cargo & Logistics Services in terms of dedicated staff, state-of-the art facilities and young fleet, Addis Ababa has recently been designated as Humanitarian Air Hub by WFP and WHO to dispatch critical supplies across Africa.
