Irma recovery efforts continue as next hurricane threatens Caribbean

Even as yet another major cyclone – the Category 5-level Hurricane Maria – plows through the Caribbean region today, cargo groups and nonprofits are scrambling to provide food, medicine and other relief supplies to help the islands recover from the last major storm, Hurricane Irma. Disaster relief charities Airlink, LIFT, Patient Airlift Services (PALS) and Rescue Global have teamed up to deliver humanitarian aid to those in a partnership called “Operation Airlift Irma,” which is working with commercial air carriers to deliver food, medical supplies, emergency shelter and equipment, and providing access to clean water, sanitation, electricity and telecommunications.
