ATLANTA, Nov. 03 /CSRwire/ - Yesterday the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined UPS (NYSE:UPS) Executive Richard Currie and UNICEF’s Paul Molinaro at UNICEF's global Supply Center in Copenhagen to help maintain the global spotlight on the humanitarian crisis in East Africa, which has left more than 320,000 children so severely malnourished that they are at imminent risk of starving to death unless they get urgent help. UNICEF's Supply Center has a warehouse within it the size of three football fields. It sources, packs and distributes essential supplies for children around the globe, including food, water, special nutritional supplies for the most malnourished children, vaccines and emergency medical kits.

UPS, a long-standing partner of UNICEF, is providing 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.
