fifth Airbus A350 XWB.

goods destined for underprivileged children in three southern
provinces in Thai Airways under the project.
Donated supplies include 150 backpacks and
classroom stationery supplied by Aviation Without Borders, 50
backpacks from the International School of Toulouse, and 800 kits
from Airbus Foundation.
Ms. Andrea Debbane (pictured), Executive Director of
the Airbus Foundation, said, “We are pleased to be able to
support and bring our logistical aid to children from
underprivileged backgrounds. This donation is the result of an

donation will improve the children’s educational situation and
bring relief to the poor supply of school equipment.”
