Humanitarian relief has been in our DNA for decades, and FedEx understands how such a humanitarian crisis can dramatically alters lives and communities.
We at FedEx are compelled to play our part in the continuing crisis that the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) estimates has led to more than 744,000 refugees and migrants since the beginning of 2015. Working together with international relief organizations, we are utilizing our global transportation network and resources to assist the affected people, to improve their quality of life.
That’s why at the end of September FedEx pledged $1 million of aid in response to the crisis. Over the next two years, this money will help the IFRC and Red Crescent Societies whose members work on the front-lines in Italy, Greece, Austria, Serbia and Macedonia, among other countries. FedEx has also transported on behalf of Direct Relief large volumes of medical supplies for use in refugee camps in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey providing shelter for Syrian refugees.
FedEx is a global company committed to serving local communities across the world. Working with our partner agencies, we’re committed to not only offering relief during the current crisis but also helping to support both the people and the local communities affected.
