Making a difference together
That is what KLM Health Services believes in. With various projects and partnerships we are committed to contributing to a safe, healthy and sustainable society. Unfortunately, there are still places in the world where people suffer from a lack of food, poor medical assistance and who have no access to education.
What we do about this
Wherever possible, we support AirCares, the humanitarian programme of our parent company KLM. This humanitarian programme was established in 1999. KLM has since supported more than 40 different charities for education, sanitation and medication of children all over the world. KLM supports permanent partners including Doctor2Doctor, Wings of Support and Luchtvaart zonder Grenzen (Aviation without Borders). AirCares. Because people matter.
Healthcare in developing countries is often below par. Refresher courses are lacking and facilities are insufficient. Doctor2Doctor, a collaborative project between VU University Medical Centre, KLM Health Services and KLM, provides medical practitioners at the MTRH hospital in Kenya the necessary support.

Sustainability & Awareness
Sustainability is high on the agenda of KLM Health Services. As an independent KLM subsidiary, we follow the KLM guidelines concerning corporate social responsibility, which are very elaborate. It is no accident that KLM was once again declared the most sustainable airline in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.
Young people are the future. That is why we are a partner of JINC. a non-profit organisation that helps young people to a good start in the labour market. By teaching them social and other skills, offering workshops, and allowing them a glimpse of the workplace, they will have fair opportunities. KLM Health Services supports JINC by opening its doors for ‘Flash Internships’ and ‘Language Trips’. This acquaints pupils at a young age with business and increases their vocabulary.
