Bring Relief to Communities in Crisis

Your support will help Airlink provide airlift for relief organizations responding to COVID-19 and other disasters occurring around the globe.

With your support, more than 130 Airlink nonprofit partners will provide food, access to clean water, shelter, medical care, training, and other assistance to beneficiaries left vulnerable by crises.  Together we can ensure the right type of help reaches communities quickly and for the duration required to support proper recovery.

Airlink is currently responding to multiple crises, including:

  • Turkey-Syria Earthquake: A series of powerful earthquakes have struck Turkey and Syria leaving more than 12,000 people dead and millions in need. Airlink is coordinating flights and other transportation and logistics for responders starting with search and rescue teams (with canines), and sending humanitarian aid supplies.
  • Haiti Complex Crisis: Haiti continues to experience a dire and complex humanitarian crisis. Blockades as a result of gang control in the Port-au-Prince Metropolitan Area has led to shortages of gasoline and diesel, severely disrupting the economy and supply chain, preventing basic goods, including clean water, from reaching Haitian citizens. The lack of access to clean water has caused an outbreak in cholera with cases growing at an alarming rate. Airlink is working alongside USAID/BHA to deliver health and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) supplies related to the treatment and prevention of the cholera outbreak in Haiti. We are also working with our NGO partners to transport power sources for medical equipment and family emergency kits.
  • Hurricane Ian Recovery: For communities in Southwest Florida, recovery will take years. Airlink is providing flights for specialized teams assisting with clean-up efforts, home repair, psychological support, and more.
  • War in Ukraine: Recent attacks have left millions of people in all regions of the country without electricity. This also affects access to water and heating. Airlink continues to work with 40 nonprofit partners to respond to the humanitarian needs resulting from the war in Ukraine. 1,000+ tons of aid delivered and over 600 flights provided thus far. 
  • Pakistan Flooding: Devastating flooding in Pakistan impacted over 33 million people and caused an estimated $10 billion in damage. Airlink is supporting recovery efforts by providing flights for relief responders providing telecoms, medical, shelter and assessment support. Additionally, Airlink is transporting critical supplies such as family emergency kits, solar lights, and hygiene supplies on behalf of our relief partners.
  • Afghanistan Humanitarian Crisis: The UN has painted a bleak picture of the conditions in Afghanistan. More than 28 million people will need humanitarian assistance as the winter sets in. Airlink is sending health care and medical supplies.
  • Migrant Crisis in Mexico: Thousands of migrants are facing inadequacies to meet basic health needs for sanitation, housing, and healthcare. Airlink is providing flights for medics to staff clinics providing primary and urgent care, women’s health, and COVID-19 testing. 
  • Drought in Greater Horn of Africa: Millions of people are facing severe food insecurity following the Horn of Africa’s fourth failed rainy season; with a fifth consecutive drought forecast on the horizon, the humanitarian community must act quickly to meet the humanitarian needs of these communities. Increased instances of malnutrition and emergency levels of food insecurity have a direct, and life-threatening impact on outbreaks of preventable diseases. Airlink is coordinating airlift for shipments of nutrition and health-focused aid on behalf of our relief partners to Somalia, Kenya and Sudan with a growing pipeline of requests to Airlink and coordination calls with partners underway to assess demand, collaborative opportunities, and challenges.
