In recognition of its corporate social responsibility, consistent support to Project Pinkblue and contribution to Cancer control in Nigeria, Dana Air has been honored with the Humanitarian Partner’s Award by Project Pinkblue, a nongovernmental organization in Abuja.
The airline was honored alongside select Governors, Celebrities, Wives of Governors, volunteers, Senators, Ministers and survivors for their contribution to the fight against cancer in Nigeria, at an event to raise funds for victims of cancer held recently at Transcorp Hliton Abuja.
Similarly, the airline in a bid to save lives and contribute greatly to the healthcare of Nigerians, has also partnered Rotary Club on blood donation camp aimed at bridging the ever-increasing demand for blood due to shortage of voluntary blood donors across the country.
In the recently conducted blood donation camp, a large pool of its employee volunteered in the program to help contribute to the Rotary club’s call on corporate bodies to provide blood and meet up with the needs of the country’s population of over 180 million people.
The blood donation drive is to help ensure blood is never missing from hospital shelves and to reduce the surging rise of postpartum hemorrhaging, which is the leading cause of maternal mortality, accounting for over 27 percent of all maternal deaths in Nigeria.
Dana Air, earlier in the year was recognized as the Most Socially Responsible domestic airline in Nigeria by the League of Airports and Aviation Correspondents (LAAC).
The airline recently celebrated 10 years of service to Nigeria, with record-breaking load factor, unrivaled on-time performance and world-class in-flight service.
