Aurora is taking on emergency aid in Sierra Leone

14.11.14

Aurora Board has decided to put 150 thousand euros in emergency measures to fight the Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone. The majority of the amount is being used to purchase neccessary medical supplies, including protective clothing, rubber gloves, drugs etc., delivering it to the country and distributing it to hospitals and medical clinics.
Aurora has teamed up with British airline company Hangar 8, which is taking care of the delivery and has already sent the fully loaded plane to Sierra Leone last Thursday. Our chairman Ólafur Ólafsson together with Felix Juterczenka and Steve Schöni went with the plane and are now in Freetown and will be delivering the medical supplies tomorrow at the Ebola Center.
