Etihad Airways has celebrated the new year with Special Olympics Pakistan by sponsoring the NGO’s Annual Fundraising Gala in Karachi.
The Fundraising Gala is hosted by Special Olympics Pakistan and is attended by leading figures from the local government, as well as diplomats, media, and corporate partners.
For the past nine years, Etihad has been supporting the charity organization by providing cash and prizes, including airline tickets, for auction.
On 8th March, the delegation from Pakistan consisting of 92 athletes, 27 coaches and 3 officials will be flying with Etihad Airways to participate in 10 events at the Special Olympics World Games 2019 in Abu Dhabi.
