Lobo announces support for Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders

October 2015  

Lobo Leasing, a leading global helicopter leasing company, announce their support of Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) as the chosen corporate charity. Lobo Leasing’s contribution will, in part, help to support programme logistics and helicopter missions to aid in getting crucial personnel to areas of need, delivering humanitarian aid and airlifting patients to hospitals.  Access is particularly essential when working in remote areas such as those affected by the devastation from the earthquake in Nepal this past Spring.

The MSF programme currently works in more than 60 countries around the world, providing emergency medical care where the need is greatest regardless of nationality, race, religion or political affiliation. In 1999, MSF was awarded the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of its pioneering humanitarian work around the world.

Bill Wolf, CEO of Lobo Leasing said “We are delighted to announce our support for Médecins Sans Frontières. It’s an honour to be associated with an organisation that does such invaluable work across the globe.”
