Etihad Airways has launched two community outreach activities in Kenya with donations of blankets and school supplies to the Dream Children’s Home, and the Children in Freedom organisation.

Blankets were collected through the Blankets 4 Africa initiative, which collects donations of used airline cabin blankets, toiletry bags and bedding, and works together with The Order of Malta in Kenya to distribute these to charities in Africa.

Mrs Gichia welcomed the donation from Etihad Airways, saying: “This donation represents the kindness and generosity of Etihad Airways, the National Bank of Abu Dhabi, the Blankets 4 Africa Initiative and The Order of Malta in Kenya. Their contribution will help in alleviating the suffering of the poor and the vulnerable in Africa.

“The Dream Children’s Home currently looks after nearly 100 children and this generosity is highly appreciated by all.”

Linden Coppell, Etihad Airways Head of Sustainability, said: “As an airline we are committed to making a difference to the communities in which we operate. The Dream Children’s Home and Children in Freedom organisation stand out as beacons of hope for underprivileged children in Kenya and we are pleased to be able to support these two important causes.”

Over 700 blankets were handed over to the orphanage during a visit to the Dream Children’s Home attended by Hassan Issa Al Hosani, Minister Plenipotentiary at the UAE Embassy in Kenya, Joan Mwaniki, Etihad Airways’ General Manager, Kenya, Luzelle Boado Etihad Airways’ Sustainability Officer and Priscilla Chomba, Etihad Airways’ Marketing Coordinator in Kenya.
