Project Pinkblue awards Dana Air Humanitarian Partner’s Award

PROJECT Pinkblue, a nongovernmental organization in Abuja has awarded Dana Air with the Humanitarian Partner’s Award in recognition of the airline’s corporate social responsibility, consistent support and contribution to Cancer control in Nigeria.

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 Hilton Abuja.

Speaking on the airline’s recent award, the Accountable Manager of Dana Air, Obi Mbanuzuo said, ‘we wish to thank Project Pinkblue for recognizing and appreciating our contribution to the fight against cancer in Nigeria and other initiatives, CSRs that we have carried out just to show commitment to the well-being of Nigerians. We care and we believe that the only way to fight cancer is by first supporting the survivors and creating massive awareness about cancer.’’

Obi assured that the airline, being a proudly Nigerian brand will continue to support initiatives that will contribute to the wellbeing, growth and development of Nigeria as part of its broad corporate social responsibility.

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.
