  • [01] Sixth C-130 with aid to Lebanon departs

  • [01] Sixth C-130 with aid to Lebanon departs

    The sixth Greek C-130 military transport plane carrying humanitarian aid for Lebanon left for the Cypriot airport in Larnaca on Wednesday afternoon, loaded with 10 tonnes of medical supplies, food and water sent by the foreign ministry's Hellenic Aid service. From there it will be loaded onto military transport ships docked at Larnaca and shipped to Beirut.

    Hellenic Aid coordinates the dispatch of aid collected by non-governmental organisations like the Hellenic Red Cross and the Church of Greece charity "Solidarity". So far, more than 70 tonnes of aid have been sent to Lebanon in C-130s provided by the Greek defence ministry, while the aid has been donated by the health ministry, the civil protection secretariat, the Red Cross, Doctors of the Heart, Medecins du Monde and Solidarity.

    Hellenic Aid has also launched a fund-raising drive for the victims of the Lebanon war, inviting the public, NGOs and other organisations to deposit funds in four bank accounts. These are:

    National Bank of Greece: 040/483100-41

    Emporiki Bank: 85601920

    Alpha Bank: 101002001000610

    Agricultural Bank of Greece: 0170300300058
