Demonstrating solidarity with the Palestinians in Gaza, Airport International Group (AIG), recently launched a company-wide donation campaign to support the Jordan Hashemite Charity Organization (JHCO) to provide essential supplies, including food, medicine and tents, to those in need.
Employees were invited to contribute an amount of their choosing, while AIG also donated to augment the total raised. Airport International Group Foundation (AIGF), AIG’s executive philanthropic arm, presented a total of JOD 25,000 to JHCO on behalf of the company and its employees.
“In times of adversity, unity becomes our greatest strength. Our dedicated team members actively participated in initiatives that gave back to communities beyond borders and exemplified social solidarity with those facing unimaginable hardships. Our commitment to corporate social responsibility is not just a statement; it is a call to action. We thank everyone who took part, including JHCO and the Ministry of Health, for their tremendous efforts toward making a meaningful difference in the lives of our brethren in Gaza, Palestine,” commented AIGF Chairman, Omar M. Masri.
As Secretary General Of JHCO, Dr. Hussein Al Shebli said: “we value and appreciate the efforts and support of the Airport International Group and its employees to “for Gaza” campaign, noting that JHCO continues to prepare and send out humanitarian aid through land and air, in coordination with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Jordanian Army Forces, to ensure the delivery and providing the people of Gaza the assistance they need during these circumstances”.
In addition to financial aid, AIG joined forces with JHCO to back its food packaging initiative, which aims to deliver essential supplies to the people of Gaza. A group of dedicated employees volunteered their time and effort to participate in the project, which recently took place in Mafraq Governorate.
Employees from across all divisions of AIG also took part in a blood donation campaign conducted in collaboration with the Blood Bank Directorate of the Ministry of Health, which resulted in over 130 units of blood being collected for the people of Gaza.

The PPP (public-private partnership) has seen AIG invest $1 billion for the construction of the terminal building which offers enhanced passenger experiences through upgraded services for up to twelve million annual passengers.
