Eurocopter, NGO Support Storm Victims in Mexico
The Eurocopter Foundation is teaming up with NGO World Vision Mexico to provide humanitarian aid to victims of Hurricane Ingrid and Tropical Storm Manuel. Operations began at the end of September, providing 30 helicopter flight hours to reach communities in regions of Mexico that are currently inaccessible by land due to the recent storms. On Oct. 3, NGO began operations in Guerrero, the state most affected by the storms, using an EC130 B4 to provide food and personal hygiene items to people living in Ometepec, Cuajinicuilapa and Xochistlahuaca.
