Travellers at Schiphol Airport Fund 1,000 African Care Providers

Donations by travellers at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, and the efforts of airport staff, raised a total of EUR214,700 during 2017 to provide aid to Amref Flying Doctors.

The fund will help Amref Flying Doctors to train 1,000 additional care providers in Africa and give 500,000 people access to healthcare.

Since January 2017, Royal Schiphol Group and Amref Flying Doctors have been working together to raise money and highlight the need for better healthcare across the continent.

As well as collection points where travellers can donate money at the terminals, Schiphol staff have raised funds through various activities, including sport and game tournaments and an auction.

Amref Flying Doctors and Royal Schiphol Group share a clear link through their aviation activities. As an international health organisation, Amref Flying Doctors connects medical personnel with the most remote and inhospitable regions of Africa, among other things, by means of its medical flights.
