Alfano: “Humanitarian flight departs today to deliver 12 tons of aid for Mexican Civil Protection Agency”

The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Angelino Alfano, said: “Italy will provide relief aid to the victims of the devastating earthquake that recently struck Mexico. Italy’s Development Cooperation agency has organised a humanitarian aid flight that took off today with a load of 12 tons of relief supplies to be dispatched to the country’s Civil Protection Agency.”

“This comes in swift response to a request from Mexican authorities. The humanitarian flight organised by Italian Development Cooperation, which is always at the forefront in providing assistance to people in distress,  took off from the UN Humanitarian Response Depot (UNHRD) in Brindisi, which is managed by the World Food Programme. The flight is carrying a cargo of tents, blankets and other essential items such as hygiene kits and cooking equipment. In Mexico City, it will be handed to the Civil Protection Agency, which will manage the subsequent delivery to recipients,” concluded the minister. He stressed: “This is further proof of the Italian government’s solidarity with the Mexican people.”
