The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Foundation is calling on the travel industry to support a recovery fund to help rebuild the lives of tourism industry employees in the devastated areas of Myanmar and Sichuan, China.
The Fund will be administered by the PATA Foundation, the charitable arm of PATA. PATA and the PATA Foundation are inviting recommendations from National Tourism Offices, regional authorities, local PATA Chapters, as well as local members to recommend and submit proposals for recovery projects.
The PATA Foundation will ensure that only highly reputable organizations and community-based action groups, including universities, government training institutes, national chambers of commerce, trade associations and specialized agencies are engaged to implement the programs.
