Etihad Aviation Group has hosted a wide-range of charity and humanitarian activities to mark the Zayed Humanitarian Day, taking place today, May 24.

 

As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility’s (CSR) agenda, the airline has unfolded an array of food donations, charity activities and Eid gifts, reflecting the value of sharing during the Holy month of Ramadan and the Year of Tolerance. The programme includes both the United Arab Emirates and abroad, showcasing the airline’s commitment towards underprivileged communities around the world.

Khaled Al Mehairbi, honorary chairman of CSR Programme, Etihad Aviation Group, said: “We are delighted to mark Zayed Humanitarian Day with a variety of local and global initiatives, giving back to the communities we are serving. It builds on our commitment to promote Abu Dhabi’s image as a charity and humanitarian hub, bringing smiles to everyone, especially people in need.

“We would like to thank our long-standing partners, the Office of H.H. Sheikha Shamsa bint Hamdan Bin Mohamed Al Nahyan, and the Emirates Red Crescent for their continuous support to make these initiatives possible.”

Etihad has also treated 50 senior citizens and 50 orphans to a special iftar and surprise Eid gifts.  The team of Etihad Youth Council have welcomed the orphans and elderly people in a family atmosphere.

The airline has also donated around 12,000 meals to labourers in Mussaffah throughout the Holy month and distributed Eid giveaways to 5,000 workers in Campco Village labour camp, Abu Dhabi. Etihad also donated furniture items to families in need across Northern and Westerns regions of the UAE.
