Thousands of people are trying to cross the border to Bangladesh daily. “If this continues, the account will be over a million refugees in a near future,” a statement given on Oct 23rd, 2017 by the General Director of the Organization for Migration (IOM), William Lacy Swing during the Pledging Conference in Geneva.

The number of Rohingya fleeing from Myanmar are estimated at 1,1 million. Their present situation can only be called inacceptable. Many cross the border barefooted and the malnutrition is clearly visible primarily among the children.

Wings of Help has just finished loading two 40ft sea container designated for the crisis area, containing food, clothing and medical supplies.

 

The President of LOG / Wings of Help, Mr. Frank Franke said: “The situation of these people and seeing their hopeless state, has moved us to step in and help quickly. Relief goods for an additional third sea container is presently in preparation.”

 

The motto of LOG says, “Friends in Need, are Friends Indeed!”, with special thanks to all supporters but especially Condor Flugdienst GmbH.

 

“It is our companies believe, that we help the poorest of the poor, and these are primarily the children. With his renewed relief program, we are able to provide help to people in dire distress” said Ralf Teckentrup, Chairman of the Board, Condor Management. The airline has been a reliable partner for many years. Condor Airlines has been aiding and helping LOG / Wings of Help through their social responsibility unit “ConTribute”, in joint projects since 2010. There have been missions in Northern Iraq (Kurdistan), erecting housing in Nepal after the earthquake. In a very special mission Condor sent a Boeing 767-300 to bring medical staff and about 25tons of medical supplies into Haiti after the catastrophic earthquake in 2010
