help alliance – The key pillar of the social commitment of Lufthansa Group
help alliance is the charity of the Lufthansa Group.
It is the key pillar of the social commitment of the Group. In its work, it benefits from the strength and the network of the Lufthansa Group and its staff.
The not-for-profit organization now covers around 30 projects from around the world under one umbrella, which is intended to help young people in particular to access education and to enable them to lead self-determined lives – in accordance with the motto „Closer to the World. Closer to its People.”
In addition to the major focus on education and training, help alliance supports entrepreneurship. In the past few years, some 140 projects have been supported. All project content corresponds with the strict standards of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the sustainable goals of the UN for 2030.
The voluntary commitment of the polyglot employees of the Lufthansa Group has always been at the center of the work. The colleagues take on direct responsibility and are involved in the projects with their knowledge, skills and networks. The personal contacts create trust, and ensure that the donations actually get to where they are needed.
To this end, help alliance works with competent local partners who have long-term experience in development cooperation, and who are very familiar with the local circumstances and, primarily, with the needs of the people.
The projects are funded solely through donations.

Cargo Human Care
Uncomplicated and professional medical help for the people in Nairobi – that is the basic idea of the humanitarian aid project “Cargo Human Care”. Employees at Lufthansa Cargo founded the charitable organization in cooperation with German physicians in 2007. The cargo airline’s Executive Board has supported the aid project from the very beginning. Lufthansa Cargo provides flight tickets for physicians and available transport capacities aboard their freighter aircraft, both free of charge.In this way, medical equipment and aid supplies can be shipped directly to Nairobi.
