Partnering up for charity
What a difference Flying Blue can make!
That is why we came up with a way to offer them our support. With Flying Blue, you can put your Miles to good use by donating them to one of our partner charities. Below you will find a short description on the activities of six of these important partner charities. Thanks to your donations, they will have the means to give hope and change lives.
La Chaîne de l’EspoirLa Chaîne de l’Espoir is a French charity committed to providing the poorest children around the world with access to healthcare and education. Present in approximately 30 countries, La Chaîne de l’Espoir also relies on a large network of volunteer surgeons and doctors who are ready to travel so that they can operate on children in their own home country. Each year, 100,000 children benefit from the care programmes and 5,000 undergo surgery. Your donation will help the charity perform its vital activities.
AIR FRANCE FoundationThe Air France Foundation studies, selects and finances projects to help sick, disabled and vulnerable children in countries where Air France flies to by giving them access to education, training, culture and health. From the construction of a socio-educational centre and the extension of a high school in Burkina Faso, to the development of a social centre in Romania and the extension of a nursery in Brazil, hundreds of children have been helped by the Air France Foundation. Your donation will be spent on helping these children.
Gawad KalingaThe Philippines-based charity Gawad Kalinga aims to help 5 million families by 2024. The charity has already created 2,500 communities for one million people. The charity specifically provides a nurturing environment for leaders, especially social entrepreneurs, to grow and develop at the grassroots level, and to empower communities to connect to mainstream services and opportunities. Your donation is spent helping these communities.
Wings of SupportWings of Support is a private initiative of KLM employees who are committed to the wellbeing of children living in KLM destinations. KLM’s aircrew use their layover time to support local, small-scale programmes focusing on education, shelter or medical aid. Your donation will be used for sustainable projects all over the world.
Giro555When a major disaster strikes, 11 well-established aid organisations in the Netherlands work collaboratively to launch a joint appeal. Under the name Giro555, they campaign to raise as much money and support as possible to finance the required emergency relief response. Together, we're saving more lives. Your donation is spent on life-saving relief and reconstruction in the affected areas.
The Ocean CleanupThe Ocean Cleanup develops technologies that use the natural sea currents to collect floating plastic garbage on the world’s oceans. Computer simulations predict that a 100km installation will remove half of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 10 years. Your donation will help The Ocean Cleanup achieve this goal.
