FICCI signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with AirAsia to assist disadvantaged families and children with free airfare tickets to India for their life-changing surgery.
The agreement forms part of AirAsia Philippines commitment to supporting local and disadvantaged communities, and follows the recent case whereby AirAsia provided travel assistance to Filipino infant and her family to receive much-needed medical treatment in India.
Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce President Rex Daryanani said, “Our partnership with AirAsia is anchored by a shared commitment to help build healthy Filipino communities, especially children in impoverished areas who require immediate medical help.”
The signing ceremony was led by FICCI President Rex Daryanani, AirAsia Philippines Inc. Chairperson Maan Hontiveros, AirAsia Philippines CEO Captain Dexter Comendador, Sen. Bam Aquino and Ms. Niña Mahler of Hold On Pain Ends (HOPE) For Children, Inc.
AirAsia Philippines CEO Captain Dexter Comendador said, “AirAsia’s collaboration with FICCI is yet another step forward in our commitment to communities we serve. Our philosophy is that no corporation can live apart from the community and in times of need we will always extend a helping hand, especially when it comes to our children. We are honored to partner with FICCI, an organization that shares this same passion.
As part of the agreement, AirAsia will become one of the airline partners of FICCI’s medical assistance program, providing travel assistance for the programs chosen beneficiaries
