The 17 tons of aid, which includes sleeping bags, quilts, clothing, generators and other additional items was distributed among military hospitals and rehabilitation centers for injured soldiers in Kyiv, Lviv & Vinnytsia areas.
“We are deeply grateful for the leading initiative by Brother’s Brother Foundation in organizing the much needed support in the region,” remarked Christopher Alf, Chairman, National Air Cargo Holdings Inc.
