Starting with a visit to UNICEF’s Global Supply Center by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, UPS chronicles a shipment of life-saving emergency kits to children in East Africa. UPS, a long-standing partner of UNICEF, is provided a charter flight to deliver these much needed supplies from Copenhagen to East Africa.

In August, UPS committed to work with UNICEF and the World Food Programme (WFP) to leverage its global logistics network and help speed emergency supplies to the region. Since then, UPS has shipped over 300 metric tons of needed food and medical supplies.
