The French CMA CGM Foundation has stepped up again to lend support to the people in Lebanon. It has just provided 7 tonnes of baby food to several Lebanese NGOs.
In a statement on Monday, it announced that it had purchased more than 4,000 cans of milk formula from the French Danone food company, in addition to 10,000 children’s food products.
The Lebanese-owned Foundation said that it had transported the goods to Beirut aboard a ship owned by CMA CGM Group and handed them over to nine NGOs in Lebanon.
It also explained that the move comes in response to “the looming emergency and in support of Lebanese families who are no longer able to meet the nutritional needs of their children.”
The aid, which will benefit more than a thousand children under the age of three, was distributed to the following organizations, with help from the Group’s CEVA Logistics:
Farah Al Ataa
Lebanese Food Bank
Karantina Governmental Hospital
Amel Association International
Enfants de Lumière
Tantet men Lebnen
CMA CGM Foundation, which launched its “Supports Lebanon” operation back in December 2019, has affirmed the continuation of its commitment in Lebanon by reiterating its humanitarian support to the Lebanese people.
Since September 2020, more than 80 humanitarian aid containers have been sent to Beirut as part of the Foundation’s Conteneurs d’Espoir (Containers of Hope) operation.
