EADS North America Partners With Alabama To Send Supplies To Haiti

3000 Pounds Of Supplies Donated By Montgomery Rescue Mission

In a partnership with Alabama Governor Bob Riley's office, EADS North America is sending an Airbus Military C-212 tactical transport aircraft to Haiti with nearly 3,000 pounds of relief supplies aboard. The cargo of food and clothing was provided by Montgomery Rescue Mission, a non-profit agency assisted by Gov. Riley's Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, under the leadership of First Lady Patsy Riley.

"Alabamians know all too well the devastation caused by natural disasters and so many have donated to help relieve the human suffering in Haiti," said Governor Riley. "The donations being transported on this aircraft will go to help children of the Faith Crusade Orphanage, which cares for more than 150 children and is supported by the Montgomery Rescue Mission. I thank EADS North America for being an outstanding corporate citizen and donating the use of this aircraft, and I commend all those who are working to get these needed relief supplies to these children in Haiti."

"We're pleased to be able to help Gov. Riley and the good people of Alabama bring aid to Haiti's earthquake victims, who are still in terrible need," said Sean O'Keefe, EADS North America CEO. "The Governor and all of our neighbors in Alabama have shown EADS and its divisions tremendous support and friendship over the years, and we are happy to have an opportunity to assist them with such a worthy endeavor."

The C-212 left for Haiti Tuesday morning from Airbus Military North America's aircraft support facility at the Mobile Regional Airport.

The HC-144 was among several EADS airplanes, helicopters and related technologies employed by the U.S. Coast Guard, Army and Air Force for humanitarian operations in Haiti following January 12 earthquake there.
