Chile handles shipping of humanitarian aid for Haiti from Costa Rica and Panama

“Over the past few days, we have coordinated with other friendly countries who wanted to send donations to Haiti. We have offered the use of our Boeing KC-135 plane, which has a high load capacity, so that they can send aid to a nation suffering earthquake devastation,” commented Chile’s Foreign Relations Minister, Andrés Allamand.

This morning the Chilean Air Force (FACH) plane flew from Costa Rica to Haiti. The Chilean government made the aircraft available to other countries in the region, so that they could send humanitarian aid to the Haitian people affected by the 7.2 magnitude that occurred last Saturday, leaving almost two thousand dead and some ten thousand injured. 

“Over the past few days, we have coordinated with other friendly countries who wanted to send donations to Haiti. We have offered the use of our Boeing KC-135 place, which has a high load capacity, so that they can send aid to a nation suffering earthquake devastation,” commented Chile’s Foreign Relations Minister, Andrés Allamand. 

On this occasion, the aircraft transported 9.5 tons of essential goods donated by Costa Rica. “We unite in solidarity with Haiti. Together with Chile, we are coordinating to send humanitarian aid from Costa Rica to Haiti, in response to the situation they are facing due to the recent earthquake. Thank you, President Sebastián Piñera, for the initiative. I urge the international community to support the Haitian people,” said Costa Rica’s President, Carlos Alvarado. 

The Boeing KC-135 arrived in Haiti for the first time on Monday with 16 tons of goods donated by Chile, such as water, food, medicine and personal hygiene kits. Yesterday, the plane flew to Panama to transport another 14 tons of aid provided by the country.
