SALVATION ARMY TEAMS PROVIDE REFRESHMENTS AT NIGERIA PLANE CRASH SITE

// 06 JUNE 2012 //

THE Salvation Army in Nigeria is responding after a plane crashed into a residential area near Murtala Muhammed Airport in Lagos on Sunday 3 June. All 153 passengers were killed, along with an unknown number of casualties on the ground.

 
A team of Salvation Army officers was despatched to the evacuation site on Monday morning. They spoke with representatives from the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and others who are at the site dealing with the aftermath of the accident. It quickly became clear that the most urgent need was for food and drink for the workers who are clearing the wreckage and searching for bodies.
 
Three teams have been organised to give out snacks and drinks while the recovery work takes place. During this time, consideration will be given to medium- or long-term assistance.
