Godfather II. Spiderman II. Toy Story II. Sometimes sequels surpass expectations by being as good or even better than the original. My colleagues at UPS met the sequel challenge with flying colors. UPS’s second flight of humanitarian aid was delivered successfully to the Sahel region, where millions of people face dire hunger and living conditions due to severe drought and civil unrest.
Our April flight to Sahel was in support of UNICEF. This week’s airlift is the first consolidated flight carrying goods for multiple agencies and reflects our hopes to combine resources among charitable groups for more efficient delivery of supplies.
