Maximus wins big aid contract
25 / 11 / 2008
The mission is funded by the UAE government as a gift to Sudan’s Humanitarian Aid Commission.
Maximus will dedicate one special purpose Lockheed Hercules L382G aircraft to the operation, along with 12 crew and support staff who will be based in Khartoum for the period.
Supplies will be airlifted from there to Geneina, Nyala, Malakal, Juba, Al Fasher and Al Obeid.
The Hercules will carry about 15 tons per flight, beginning with about 10 deliveries a month and rising to two a day as the mission gathers momentum.
“The mission is to deliver humanitarian aid and emergency supplies to everyone everywhere in Sudan who is in need. We are honoured to be able to make a contribution to relieving the suffering which Sudan and its people are experiencing,” said Maximum president and chief executive Fathi Hilal Buhazza.
