schiphol airport unicef fundraising passenger terminalThe Royal Schiphol Group’s collaboration with UNICEF has raised €1.1m (US$1.2m) over the past five years.

The money was raised through passenger donations in collection boxes, special parking promotions, the sale of Schiphol’s old computer equipment, and campaigns by Schiphol employees.

As of January 2017, Royal Schiphol Group’s new social partner is AMREF Flying Doctors, an air and ground ambulance service based in Nairobi, Africa, that is involved in a number of health care projects in East Africa.

The service is owned by AMREF Health Africa, and is an international health development non-governmental organization.

Hans van Kastel, spokesperson for Royal Schiphol Group, said: "We are very grateful to the passengers at Schiphol for this huge amount and we are proud of our colleagues who have worked for UNICEF.

"The aim of the partnership with AMREF Flying Doctors is to provide around 4,000 people with medical training, giving two million people access to healthcare as a result."
