[ December 5, 2015   //   ]

A Lufthansa Cargo freighter is from now on flying around the world with the footprints of 24 children on its fuselage. The carrier has turned the MD-11F registered “D-ALCH” into a flying
ambassador for the aid organization Cargo Human Care.
The colorful design was presented on at Kenya’s Nairobi airport. It symbolizes the motto “Step by step. Giving children a future.”
The footprints on the 61 meter-long fuselage are from girls and boys who are currently being looked after by Cargo Human Care.
The association runs an orphanage for around 120 children nearby the Kenyan capital and also upports a medical centre. German doctors are regularly flown on board the Lufthansa Cargo
freighters to Nairobi, where they provide free treatment for those in need. In order to also offer a stable and safe environment for the orphans after they reached the age of majority.
Cargo Human Care recently opened a new residence for 18 to 24 year olds. More than 20 young women and men will live in the John Kaheni Residence, which is named after a resident of the Cargo Human Care institution who died of a heart condition at just 20 years old. They have recently successfully completed school and are currently undertaking vocational training.
