Online travel charity launches

A new website giving travellers and travel companies the chance to support charities in holiday destinations is being launched this Spring.

 

Travaid.org is being run by Travel Philanthropy, a British charity that funds community projects in some of the world's poorest nations.

 

Travaid spokesman Nick Chaffe says many holidaymakers want to help people in the countries they've recently visited. "We are giving them an online means of donating to really worthwhile projects," he says.
