Supporting the communities we work in
WFS stations around the world and the partners we work with regularly support local charities.
One of the best examples of this is Bangkok Flight Services’ (BFS) annual Cargo Awards Gala Dinner in Bangkok. Now in its fifth year, this leading regional event to recognise those who have contributed greatly to the air cargo industry both locally and internationally raises money for an outstanding local charity. In 2015 alone, the event raised five million baht for the Foundation for Slum Child Care (FSCC) under the Royal Patronage of H.R.H Princess Galyani Vadhana Krom Luang Naradhiwas Rajanagarindra.
Through its five years of support for the Foundation, BFS, a joint venture between WFS and Bangkok Airways, has supported the building of a new FSCC childcare centre in On-Nut called the ‘House of Hope’, which is due to open in 2015. They money raised at this year’s awards is being used to purchase an adjacent plot of land to build a new playground to improve the quality of life for children in the On-Nut slum area.
