Ibom Air Marks 2024 World Malaria Day, Launches Signature CSR Project, ‘FAM-pact’

Ibom Air has commemorated 2024 World Malaria Day by launching its signature CSR project, FAM-pact (Fight Against Malaria in Pregnant Women and Children Today). This initiative underscores Ibom Air’s dedication to making a positive impact in the communities it serves by addressing the urgent issue of malaria among pregnant women and children under the age of five.

A statement signed by the airline’s General Manager, Marketing & Communication, Aniekan Essienette says “FAM-pact is designed to significantly decrease malaria prevalence in these vulnerable groups through a range of strategic interventions, including awareness campaigns, distribution of insecticide-treated nets, provision of malaria medications, and community outreach programs. As part of its launch, Ibom Air has donated insecticide-treated nets, essential malaria medications, and educational materials to the Akwa Ibom State Ministry of Health, directly benefiting communities across the state.

To further amplify awareness and garner support, Ibom Air invites the public to participate in a solidarity walk against malaria on April 27th at 6 am, starting from the symbolic Globe at Wellington Bassey Way Uyo. This walk symbolizes unity and determination in the fight against malaria.

According to the Group Manager for Corporate Services, Mrs. Imelda Aba, “Ibom Air’s CSR thrust is centered around health education and community development. Under the health initiative, we have had the opportunity to partner with organizations that take special care of infants and children’s needs and have facilitated much-needed intervention for children undergoing corrective heart surgery, amongst others. This year, we decided to launch a flagship disease prevention initiative, ‘FAM-pact, ‘ which strongly collaborates with other stakeholders to care for the vulnerable and significantly reduce the ills of malaria in our society.”

Ibom Air thanks the Akwa Ibom State Ministry of Health, National End Malaria Council, PMI-S,  Break-Through Action, Medical Women’s Association (Akwa Ibom State Chapter), Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria, office of the First Lady and GIFA, Feyrep, University of Uyo Medical Student Association, and other stakeholders. It encourages individuals, organizations, and communities to join the FAM-pact initiative and contribute to the fight against malaria. Together, we can create a healthier and more prosperous future for all.”
