 GIVING back to the community isn’t something new for World Discovery Travel. In fact, the full service travel agency has been organising different projects each year.

They have gone a step further this year by holding a special charity drive to assist two non-profit organisations.

“Over the years, we have been holding in-house Christmas charity activities and hosting lunches at the Tabgha Cafe to create awareness as the cafe is run by the learning disabled.

“This time around we thought why not try something different so that we are able to contribute to the society in a bigger way,” said World Discovery Travel managing director Inbam Solomon.

Inbam explained that the project hopes to aid Rumah Titian Kasih, a centre for single mothers and orphans and the St. Paul ’s Day Training Centre for the mentally challenged.

To help, all one needs to do is buy airline tickets from the agency.

For every ticket bought from July 1 to Aug 31, RM30 will be donated to the non-profit organisations.

For the two-month campaign themed Do Good! Feel Good!, World Discovery Travel hopes to raise at least RM10,000 for each charity to enable them to continue their good work.

At the launch of the project, World Discovery Travel treated its clients and airline partners to lunch at the Tabgha Cafe at St.Paul’s Church in Petaling Jaya which is run by the trainees of the day training centre.
