2021 Winner

Gerry’s dnata, Islamabad

Gerry’s dnata Islamabad went above and beyond what the industry was normally having to do, not with the Covid support that they were giving but the emotional pressure of dealing with the Afghanistan refugee crisis. This was a double pressure on the station in a very difficult humanitarian situation.
