PRLog (Press Release) - Jul. 20, 2011 - Justin Lancaster, Cargo Sales Director for ACS Group, commented: “Working closely with our Dubai office, , so far using mainly MD-11s and Boeing B747s. The cargo is varied and includes medical supplies and tents for the refugees. We have more charters throughout this week and many more requests that we are working on.”

Lancaster continued: “North eastern Kenya has experienced the added hardship of growing numbers of refugees – every day between 1,000 and 1,500 Somalis cross the Kenyan border to the largest refugee settlement in the world, Dadaab, where there are already close to 400,000 people. The medical supplies are desperately needed, and the tents that we are bringing in will go some way to helping to house these extra people.

“ACS has a long and proud history of humanitarian operations stretching back decades, and this latest crisis is terrible – we are doing all that we can to help our clients get their aid to the region as quickly as possible.”
