UKWA marks 75th year with pledge to raise £75,000 for Transaid

At this year’s Annual Conference, UKWA announced that it will mark its 75th anniversary – which it is celebrating throughout 2019 – by raising £75,000 for industry charity Transaid.

Transaid’s work includes the MAMaZ Against Malaria (MAM) programme which works to tackle severe malaria in Zambia by improving drug supply chains and access to health facilities.  Money raised by UKWA will help reduce depressing mortality rates from malaria by funding development of the country’s supply chain and logistics infrastructure enabling remote communities to be reached and effective treatment and vital medicines delivered.

UKWA CEO Peter Ward said: “2019 is a momentous year for UKWA and we want to do something special to mark this milestone. What could be more fitting for our logistics sector and UKWA members than funding essential logistics infrastructure, expertise and training that has the potential to save thousands of lives? We are planning a number of high profile fund-raising events throughout the year – details of which will be announced in due course.”
