Amman, November 2017 – In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an international health campaign observed annually, Airport International Group held a number of activities and awareness session, as part of its corporate social responsibility practices at Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA), during the month of October. By holding these activities, Airport International Group reaffirmed its ongoing commitment towards the continued health and well-being of its employees and the local community.

Raising awareness was paramount during the month, whereby a large pink ribbon sticker, which is a universal symbol for the campaign, was installed on the façade of the terminal building; furthermore, Airport International Group female employees distributed ribbon pins to passengers, while also wearing pink vests emblazoned with a supportive message as well as their own ribbon pins. Meanwhile, in cooperation with the King Hussein Cancer Center (KHCC) and King Hussein Cancer Foundation (KHCF), an awareness session was conducted for female employees about breast cancer, discussing preventative measures, symptoms and the importance of regular screenings and self-exams. The session was followed by a complementary clinical examination. Moreover, a cash donation was allocated to the treatment of underprivileged patients at the KHCC.

“We are proud to play an integral role in bolstering the collective efforts to raise awareness for such an important cause,” said Airport International Group CEO, Kjeld Binger. “As a significant pillar of the Jordanian community, we at Airport International Group believe it is our responsibility to support and contribute to the health and welfare of employees as well as the community at large. By helping spread awareness and knowledge about this disease, we can empower people to be advocates for their own health and thus contribute to a healthier community overall.”
