World Food Program

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (Transport and Logistics News) - TNT Express has increased its support for the World Food Program (WFP) as it scales up its efforts to supply emergency food assistance in the Horn of Africa.

The global logistics company will supply emergency airlift capabilities, in order to assist the WFPs attempts to reach an additional 2.2 million people in the south of Somalia.

TNT also initiated an internal fundraising drive across its global operations.

Managing director TNT Express Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Islands Bob Black said the famine across the Horn of Africa is an unprecedented humanitarian disaster.

The scale of the crisis faced by the people in the Horn of Africa is unimaginable.

There are 11 million people in dire need of food assistance, which is why TNT is supporting the World Food Program with resources and fundraising, said Mr Black.

TNT has been a corporate partner of the World Food Program since 2002.

The company also recently placed two job seekers originally from the Horn of Africa as part of a Workskill project initiated by the Victorian Freight and Logistics Council (VFLC) and funded by the Victorian State Government.

Selomune Gebremedhim and Haftom Atsebha came to Australia as refugees from Ethiopia and have been working full-time as dockhands for TNT since May.

Only three months after TNT Australia welcomed two new members to its family, originally from the Horn of Africa, we are now providing emergency assistance to the region.

Its a sobering reminder of how lucky we are to live in Australia, said Mr Black.
