All Aer Lingus flights this weekend will be holding special collections for the 1.4m children affected by a famine crisis in Africa and the Middle East. The funds raised will go to help children in South Sudan, Somalia, Nigeria and Yemen. The airline and UNICEF are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their partnership for children this year.
Former Ireland rugby international and UNICEF Ireland Ambassador Donncha O’Callaghan, who has travelled to see the work the aid organisation is doing in South Sudan, was on hand to accept a cheque for close to €1.1m, representing money raised through the airline’s Change for Good initiative in 2016.
