Kennards Self Storage Croydon Park in South Australia are pleased to announce our support of Airborne Aid Ltd, a not-for-profit organisation delivering tailored medical aid donation packages from Australia to destinations in need across the world.
Airborne Aid has been in operation since 2013, and has chapters in SA, Victoria and New South Wales. Over 60% of packages are processed by the SA chapter, which is in need of a sizeable dedicated space to sort and pack donations, and to expand to meet demand. From June this year, KSS will donate a storage unit to the SA chapter of Airborne Aid, to assist in receiving generous donations and in dispatching medical aid donation packages to travellers headed to regional Australian communities and Overseas.
Airborne Aid liaises with receiving healthcare organisations to find out what they need most – be it bandages, swabs, syringes, or the like that may have been destined for landfill – and hand-packs unique packages for transport, carefully checking that all items are safe, hygienic, and ready for immediate medical use. Airborne Aid transfers a given medical aid donation package to the traveller who initiated the request, who in turn kindly transports the package in their free luggage space to the destination on their flight.
Airborne Aid has supplied over a third of a million dollars and 1.5 tonnes of much-needed medical aid to 36 countries, including the APY lands in remote Australia, Cambodia, Ghana, Tanzania, Thailand, Timor-Leste (East Timor) and other developing countries.
Kennards Self Storage Croydon Park will help Airborne Aid by providing a delivery and collection address 7 days a week.
