Gulf Air Collaborates with Bahrain Cancer Society

Gulf Air, the Kingdom of Bahrain’s national carrier, recently received Bahrain Cancer Society representatives at the airline’s Muharraq headquarters, presenting them with the proceeds of the airline’s recent Breast Cancer Awareness fundraiser, which the airline’s staff contributed in support the Society’s cancer research efforts.


Gulf Air’s Director of Corporate Affairs & Communications and Board Secretary Mr. Mohammed Amin Hulaiwah received Bahrain Cancer Society’s General Secretary Mr. Essam Matar and Treasurer Mr. Ahmed Al Nowakhda, who both praised the initiative, thanking the national carrier for its efforts in realizing the fruitful cooperation. Mr. Hulaiwah expressed appreciation towards the airline’s staff involvement and thanked them for this charitable gesture.


Gulf Air is involved in a number of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, as part of its corporate social responsibility principles. Last month, the airline marked Breast Cancer Awareness Month by holding a Breast Cancer Awareness workshop and a charity bake sale to raise funds for cancer research. Earlier this year, Gulf Air marked World Cancer Day with a company-wide initiative consisting of awareness and fundraising activities in collaboration with Bahrain Cancer Society.
