(MENAFN Press) DHL, the world's leading logistics service provider, successfully delivered 21 tonnes of blankets as part of its support for the "Egypt is Warm" campaign, following the recent cold front, the worst in over a century, to have hit the country.

In aid of those affected, DHL Express shipped the blankets to the many Egyptians in need on the 28th of December. Blankets were donated by individuals and organizations from across the Gulf region to Egyptian embassies and consulates. Participating countries included the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman and Kuwait.

DHL organised the collection and delivery of blankets from the Egyptian Embassies in each country to a central hub in Bahrain where the shipment was prepared for delivery to Egypt on board a charter flight that was commissioned especially for this shipment. In total 5,000 KGs of blankets were donated from Bahrain.

Commenting on the campaign, Nour Suliman, CEO, DHL Express Middle East and North Africa, said, "Giving back to the communities in which DHL Express operates continues to shape our business ethos and forms the foundations for our success. As such, we're proud to be supporting the "Egypt is Warm" initiative, which has seen neighboring communities take swift action to mobilize much needed aid for those affected in Egypt by the difficult winter conditions. Together with the hundreds of individuals and companies that have given generously, DHL is committed to doing all we can and to putting our resources at the disposal of such a noteworthy cause."

It is expected that the thousands of blankets delivered to Egypt by DHL Express will be handled by Egyptian NGO "Misr Lil Khair" as they were chosen by DHL to distribute the shipment due to their extensive experience in upper Egypt and their 'know how' on how to reach the most affected areas across the country.
