We are reaching out to air transport community and all who have watched the development of events in Mali where our 6 very professional and humble crew members of Volga-Dnepr have been killed while doing their peaceful duties. Thank you all who have expressed their condolences, showed their thoughtfulness and kindness through your thoughts and prayers, as well as your generous donations. It is hard to imagine what families of these men are now going through.I believe it is in the hands of the living now to make a change and make sure that people who lost their lives are not forgotten and families are supported. We pledge support from the industry to the families of these professionals. Our colleagues in USA have launched funding campaign that have raised lots of support. For those who feels more comfortable, we are setting the funding campaign here in UK. Each family is aware of the outpouring and support that has been shown thus far via GoFund, Facebook, Twitter, etc., and are eagerly tracking the support. Please accept my gratitude to all of you who support this campaign, and all your efforts to keep the story out there so all can contribute and show to the families of these brave men that we as a community stay united and that humanity will prevail.
