A humanitarian flight to Pemba, Mozambique, departed today from the emergency humanitarian response base in Brindisi to help respond to the serious humanitarian situation in the province of Cabo Delgado, which has been the target of terrorist attacks since 2017, causing an increasing number of victims and displaced people every day. This is the third and final flight organised by the Italian Cooperation and the European Commission in the framework of the EU’s “Humanitarian Air Bridge” programme. The operation had been announced by Minister Di Maio at the Ministerial event held in Brindisi, on 30 June, under the auspices of the Italian G20 Presidency, on the role of logistics in preparing for and responding to humanitarian and health crises. The initiative has made it possible to send a total cargo of over 20 tonnes to assist the population of Mozambique, with materials to combat COVID-19, basic emergency goods and foodstuffs. The operation has confirmed the central role of the Humanitarian Response Depot in Brindisi, as a logistical hub supporting humanitarian operations around the world.
