Royal Jordanian signs UNICEF partnership agreement
Royal Jordanian has signed a partnership agreement with UNICEF to help improve the situation of children and adolescents in Jordan and support UNICEF’s programmes and initiatives in Jordan which focus on the development, care and empowerment of children and adolescents.
The agreement was signed by Royal Jordanian CEO Hussein Dabbas and UNICEF’s regional director for the Middle East and North Africa Shahida Azfar.
Dabbas commended this partnership with the leading international children’s organisation, and praised UNICEF’s work in Jordan and its continued support for the protection of women and children.
Azfar thanked Royal Jordanian and stressed that only through partnerships with the private and public sectors gains for children can be achieved. “There is no doubt that this partnership will yield positive results to UNICEF’s work, in the region as well as in Jordan, to promote the health, education and protection of children,” she said.
Royal Jordanian will encourage members of its frequent flyer programme (Royal Plus) to donate points from their personal accounts to UNICEF. These points will be valid for a two-year period.
