The Second Plane Arrives In Lebanon From Canada With Tons of Aid Including Firefighting Gear And Cancer Meds

The second cargo plane sent by the humanitarian relief campaign Canada for Lebanon landed in Beirut on September 6th, bringing tons of aid to the Lebanese people.

The plane (Flight CJT 1493) delivered food and medical supplies, including medicine for cancer patients, to Lebanon, to support the ongoing relief efforts in the wake of the August 4 explosion.

Upon its arrival, the Lebanese Army unloaded the cargo before the pre-determined consignees received their respective shares, donated by various Canada-based organizations, businesses, and individuals through Canada for Lebanon.

The following is a full list of the consignees and what they received:

Food donation by Canada for Lebanon

Around 20,000 KN95 face masks, 2,000 gloves, 500 medical gowns, and 500 face shields have been donated to the hospital, respectively by MultiCraft, Milad Khalil, and Operation Ramzieh (gowns and face shields).

Children’s Cancer Center of Lebanon (CCCL)

3 skids of food, 3 skids of PPE, and 8 skids of toys have been donated to the CCCL.

These include KN95 face masks, gloves, medical gowns, face shields, in addition to cancer drugs, which have been donated, respectively, by MultiCraft, Milad Khalil, and Operation Ramzieh (gowns and face shields).

To avoid the CCCL paying duties for the toys, since they are not technically considered humanitarian relief items, the Lebanese Army received them on the Center’s behalf.
