AirAsia continues its on-going relationship with MAKNA (National Cancer Council of Malaysia) through this year’s #AirAsiaMAKNA campaign. This long-term programme helps generate cancer awareness and raise funds for underprivileged patients. They do this through the sale of the limited edition AirAsia pilot and cabin crew designed t-shirt collection.

Why help?

AirAsia has raised close to RM700,000 for MAKNA over the past two years.

…. Cancer affects everyone, directly or indirectly, be it a parent, sibling, colleague or friend. AirAsia is proud to continue to work with the National Cancer Council Malaysia (MAKNA) to raise funds and accelerate the pace of cancer awareness. Aireen Omar, CEO of AirAsia Berhad

….. The statistics of global cancer deaths are worrying but what is even more alarming is that one out of four Malaysians has a lifetime risk of developing cancer. It takes physical and emotional strength alongside financial means to access the treatments needed when fighting cancer. Hence, we are honoured to have the constant support from AirAsia in our mission against cancer with the campaign. This initiative is beyond just raising funds, more importantly, it is about creating cancer awareness. Farahida Mohd Farid, General Manager of MAKNA

Farahida Mohd Farid also expressed her thanks to AirAsia for helping share these important messages across Malaysia and the region. These messages help empower the public to take ownership of their health, she added.
