INTERSOS chartered plane crashed in Somalia

 

On May the 4th 2020 an aircraft chartered by INTERSOS to deliver humanitarian supplies to our projects in Berdale, Somalia, crashed on approach to the town. INTERSOS sends its profound condolences to the families and colleagues of all who were on board. There were no INTERSOS staff on board. INTERSOS welcomes the quick response by Somali authorities to investigate the incident and looks forward to a transparent assessment and report of all relevant information. While sharing our deep concern for all involved, INTERSOS takes this opportunity to identify the very real risks that people beyond just humanitarian workers take to deliver humanitarian assistance to vulnerable populations in hard to reach parts of Somalia.
