Posted 18 September 2017 · Add Comment

Etihad Aviation Group (EAG) has donated school supplies to help thousands of Syrian refugee children at the UAE-Jordan, Mrajeeb Al Fhood refugee camp in Jordan pursue their studies.

A senior delegation visited the camp to present the donation, headed by Khaled Al Mehairbi, Etihad Airways Senior Vice President of Abu Dhabi Hub and attended by His Excellency Hamad Al Shamsi, EAG Board Member.

The donation to Emirates Red Crescent, comprising more than 2,500 school bags and stationery sets, will benefit children between 5 and 12 years old, some of whom are starting school for the first time this year. Etihad Aviation Group made the donation through a series of fundraisers and volunteer events in Abu Dhabi, including its sixth Annual Ramadan Charity Football Tournament.

Khaled Al Mehairbi, who also serves as Chairman of the Etihad Airways Sports and Social Committee, said: “As the UAE’s national airline, we are committed to giving back to those in need. In the spirit of the Year of Giving, this donation represents the care and generosity of our dedicated staff volunteers, as well as the wider community in Abu Dhabi who participated in our initiatives to support global education.

“We are extremely proud to play a part in helping these students pursue their studies and hope that our visit will help raise awareness of the importance of children’s education. Our thanks go to all parties who supported this donation including Emirates Red Crescent, the UAE Embassy in Jordan, and the Etihad Airways team in Jordan,” said Al Mehairbi.
