The Accountable Manager of Dana Air, Mr Obi Mbanuzuo, said “Autism is largely misunderstood by many and this makes it difficult for affected children to cope with the demands of the society.  Supporting the Green October Event is just our way of showing commitment to the well-being of people living with the disorder, and the need for us all to fight against the stigma that they face’’
