AIRASIA Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the AirAsia Group, has launched a public digital donation drive as part of the group’s #InThisTogether campaign to help vulnerable communities impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, starting from today to April 30.
In a statement, the foundation said all donations would be channelled to social enterprises and charities such as Perak State Parks, SEED Foundation and Beyond Borders Malaysia that provide food and medical aid to Orang Asli families, people without permanent shelter and refugees.
Those who wish to contribute may do so via AirAsia Foundation’s dedicated fund-raising page at https://airasiafoundation.com/relieffund, through BigPay’s P2P transfer option to AirAsia Foundation or via local bank transfers (available from April 6 onwards).
Furthermore, AirAsia is redirecting its commercial and transportation channels to provide a lifeline for small businesses under the current #InThisTogether campaign.
“Aside from the AirAsia Foundation fund-raising drive, the group is providing e-commerce and delivery solutions via its e-commerce platform, OURSHOP and Teleport delivery service to bricks-and-mortar businesses as well as fitness and educational instructors who have had to shutter to control the spread of Covid-19,” it added - April 5, 2020, Bernama.
