Trans Maldivian Airways donates to The Atoll Challenge

Trans Maldivian Airways announced its sponsorship very soon after the Atoll Challenge fundraising campaign had started. It is our great pleasure to be able to support this worthy charity event that starts tomorrow, on May 4th 2014, at Kuredu Resort & Spa, Maldives.

The Atoll Challenge team will kayak approximately 165km around the Lhaviyani Atoll in order to raise awareness about Thalassaemia and try to raise funds that are needed for the Maldivian Thalassaemia Society to purchase 50 desferal pumps that are lacking in the Maldives. We are sure that the generous donation of $10,000 made by Trans Maldivian Airways will make it easier for the team to reach their goal and that we can successfully step together and help purchase the desferal pumps needed for the treatment of Thalassaemic patients in the Maldives.

We strongly support the six kayakers that are taking part in this demanding challenge and wish them favourable sea and weather conditions!

Please visit the Atoll Challenge website to find out more about Thalassaemia and follow the charity challenge on Facebook.
