Volunteers from Etihad Airways provide humanitarian support to typhoon victims in Philippines

posted on 19/09/2013: 1751 views



A group of volunteers from Etihad Airways' Abu Dhabi headquarters recently visited the Philippines to provide much needed support to victims of typhoon Utor.

The volunteers spent four days in the flood-affected areas distributing clothes, food, toiletries and blankets to the victims who lost their homes and livelihoods.

Beneficiaries of the charity mission included an aged care facility, a home for abused women and children, and the Philippine Christian Foundation School - a not-for-profit organisation which assists disadvantaged communities.

Head of CSR and Sustainability at Etihad Airways, Anne Tullis said: "We provide significant logistics support by way of free flights and cargo to assist NGOs and charities, for whom these costs are a huge overhead. But being able to provide hands-on support at a grassroots level makes a real difference to the lives of the communities, and more especially, the volunteers.

"This initiative complements our on-going support for the Philippine Christian Foundation which includes flights and participation in their recycling and vocational programs at the Smoky Mountain Centre."
