Baghdad, Iraq – November 28, 2016 – MAG Aerospace, MAG Logistics and MAG SG, along with Momentum Solutions donated essential medicines to the Unity Iraq Foundation for Relief & Development (UIFRD) to assist with treating patients in Baghdad, Iraq.
UIFRD is a non-profit organization based in Iraq with focus on caring for the displaced, and providing relief, subsidy, and assistance for the sick, the poor, and the needy. The donation, valued at one-million dollars, has been distributed throughout the Anbar province, among the Hospital of Canton, Amuda Hospital, and Hilaliya Clinic for treatment of patients at no charge.
Dr. Abeer Hasaf and Dr. Tarik Hamandee, Co-Presidency of the Health Commission for Al-Jazeera in Canton, sent a letter to MAG Logistics to “extend the deepest thanks and appreciation to the Canadian Government and both the Humpty Institute and MAG Logistics Canadian company for sending (880 lbs) of medicine.”
The donated medicine was purchased and shipped from Imres, Netherlands to Baghdad Airport in August, 2016. The air freight, and the coverage of all fees associated with the donation’s shipment was generously donated by Dubai-based logistics provider, ANHAM FZCO.
“When Dr. Hasaf had reached out asking for assistance with the medicine, we were happy to help. Having worked in Iraq for many years, and having seen the local conditions, we understood the urgency and appreciate the opportunity to get involved” said Stephen Arbib, CEO of Momentum Solutions Canada Inc.
MAG Aerospace, MAG Logistics, MAG SG, and Momentum Solutions, have collectively donated this medicine and are thankful to all entities involved in the shipments journey to the people of Baghdad, Iraq.
