Partners for refugee relief

November 29th 2015

When one of Scanlog’s customers wanted to donate baby food from Sweden to SOS Children’s Villages work with children displaced by the war in Syria, they turned to us and asked if Scanlog were willing to participate and be responsible for the transport.

Scanlog’s haulage partners Alwex / Christer Samuelsson arranged the truck and the transport management in Scanlog’s Trelleborg office piloted the transport through practical as well as bureaucratic challenges. The goal was the small town of Presevo on the border between Macedonia and Serbia, where on average 6,000 refugees a day arrive and where Serbian authorities and NGOs are struggling to help refugees with medicine, clothes and food.

Here during a two weeks period SOS Children’s Villages mobile Emergency Relief Team handed out the approximately 17,000 baby food packages from Sweden. We are happy that we in this way together could make a small contribution to the refugee relief work. Read more about SOS Children’s Villages work in Serbia here.
