Nok Air unveils charity campaign

Nok Air has launched a “Nok Gives Life” social contribution project, which coincides with Nok Air’s 3rd anniversary celebrations. The “Nok Gives Life” project works to raise funds for the Cardiac Children Foundation of Thailand, Under the Royal Patronage of H.R.H. Princess Galyani Vadhana Krom Luang Naradhiwas Rajanagarindra.

Last year Nok Air raised a total of THB 1,760,000 from the “Nok Gives Life” campaign, a donation that enabled life giving surgery and treatment for 74 young patients.

“Nok Air is pleased to continue our “Nok Gives Life” social contribution project. The concept is on each Nok Air anniversary we want to create new opportunities for those children who are in need”, said Mr. Sehapan Chumsai, Executive Vice President - Marketing, Nok Air.

Nok Air has produced special Nok Air “Nok Gives Life” key rings which are available for sale until 10 September 2007. The key rings sell for THB 40 each and can be purchased on board all Nok Air flights and all Nok Air and SGA Airlines airport counters, including Don Muang, Suvarnabhumi Airport, Chiang Mai, Mae Hong Son, Pai, Chiang Rai, Udon Thani, Loei, Phuket, Hat Yai, Trang, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Krabi and Hua Hin.

“I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Nok Air in continuing this project two years in a row, an onwards, and for the donation they will be making to our foundation,” said Professor Boonchob Pongpanich MD. FACC, President of the Cardiac Children Foundation of Thailand. “Most Thais are not aware of heart disease in children, or that children can suffer from heart disease and that only timely heart-surgery at the earliest possible age is the only way to change the fate of these children. This limited knowledge may be due to less media attention, and I do hope, together with Nok Air this will soon change.”
