“Social commitment has always been part of Lufthansa Cargo’s DNA. With the new motifs on the freighter, we are not only continuing our commitment to support Cargo Human Care, but also the United Nations’ sustainable development goal ‘No Poverty’,” explained Lufthansa Cargo Chief Operations Officer Harald Gloy.
Fokko Doyen, President of Cargo Human Care and flight captain at Lufthansa Cargo, is also delighted with the new livery: “Cargo Human Care is a matter of heart not only for me but also for many colleagues. I am very proud that we now have a new ambassador who carries Cargo Human Care around the globe”.
Cargo Human Care e.V. was founded in 2007 by Lufthansa Cargo employees and has been supporting people in Kenya since then, giving them access to education and medical care. In addition to an orphanage, the organisation runs a medical centre, two primary schools, a youth centre and a training workshop for leatherworkers. Already in 2015, a Lufthansa Cargo MD-11F with the registration D-ALCH also bearing the name “¡Buenos días México!” was provided with a special livery for Cargo Human Care. After the aircraft was phased out in March as part of the rollover to a more efficient freighter fleet, the latest “Triple Seven” in the fleet is now taking on the task of carrying the mission of Cargo Human Care around the world. The first trip is already planned for this weekend with flight number LH8472 to Chennai.
