Boeing has demonstrated how corporations can leverage their capacity and services to improve the health and safety of people worldwide through its program that uses available cargo space to deliver humanitarian aid to disaster sites.
Boeing Provides Humanitarian Delivery Flight Program
Boeing has been a dedicated partner in helping Americares save lives and improve health for people affected by poverty or disaster since 2009. Its Humanitarian Delivery Flight Program has supported emergency aid shipments to Chile, Indonesia, Pakistan, the Philippines, Somalia and Uzbekistan. The program is a collaborative effort among Boeing, its airline customers, domestic nonprofits and international nongovernment organizations to deliver humanitarian aid to communities in need around the world.
Partner in Emergency Response
Boeing is an Americares Emergency Response Partner, providing key resources that allow us to maintain a response platform of medicines, supplies and people. Thanks to Boeing and the other members of the AERP, when disasters strike, Americares can launch robust responses at a moment’s notice, delivering critical medicines and emergency supplies virtually anywhere in the world.
A Heritage of Helping and Innovation
“Boeing’s culture mirrors the heritage of aviation itself, built on a foundation of innovation, aspiration and imagination. We make use of these assets for commercial success as well as for helping make the world a better place for all,” said Liz Warman, director of Boeing Global Corporate Citizenship for the Northwest region. “We are pleased to partner with Americares and support their dedication to saving lives and restoring health whenever and wherever disaster strikes.”
