AirAsia Foundation is helping vulnerable communities impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The philanthropic arm of AirAsia Group is working with charities such as Perak State Parks, SEED Foundation and Beyond Borders Malaysia. These organizations help provide food and medical aid to Orang Asli families, people without permanent shelter and refugees.
AirAsia Foundation Executive Director Yap Mun Ching said: “The pandemic has disproportionately affected those who were already socio-economically disadvantaged. Among our grantees, several have reported appeals from community members for food aid. In these extraordinary times, we call for collective action and hope that as many people as possible will give their support.”
BigPay CEO and Co-Founder Christopher Davison said: “In partnering in this campaign, our priority is to enable donors to do their part from the safety of their homes and support frontline workers, as they carry out life-saving missions. BigPay’s goal is to enable financial inclusivity for all layers of society. This drive encapsulates our broader mission.”
AirAsia Foundation has been supporting relief organizations since 2013. The Foundation has also coordinated the delivery of thousands of tons of aid on AirAsia flights to disaster-hit locations across the region.
