ABUJA, 11 March 2019 – As the Nigeria INGO Forum, with a membership of
51 international NGOs, we wish to express our deepest condolences to
everyone, including the humanitarian and development community, who lost
colleagues, friends and loved ones on Ethiopian Airlines flight ET302 on Sunday
10th March 2019.
This was a tragic incident that has shocked and saddened the whole community
in Nigeria. With confirmed INGO and UN staff on the flight, we stand in solidarity
with your grief and express our deepest sorrow. So many of our members knew
of, loved or worked with someone lost in this tragedy.
Globally, the aid community is small and in the face of such a tragedy, our
thoughts are with loved ones and their colleagues, friends and families.
