The COVID 19 pandemic has been a long and difficult time for most of the people and it has had a serious impact on a multitude of different people. While the spread of the coronavirus in Cambodia is limited, many industries have been affected by the subsequent lockdowns and safety measures. Some of the hardest hit industries include; the travel and tourism industry, the hospitality industry, the transporation sector, as well as numerous production and manufacturing plants.
Over 600,000 Cambodians across tourism & transportation industries have been impacted. Now, with job losses, pay cuts, and a lack of dependable income – those most vulnerable are not able to feed their families, pay their bills, or even, afford existing loans, thus pushing them further into financial hardship.
That’s where local companies like Camboticket are making a difference. Through their donation initiative they are making a special effort to raise much-needed relief funds for Cambodian families harshly affected by the global pandemic.
Shivam Tripathi, co-founder and CEO of Camboticket, said, “Over the years, Camboticket has helped local and international travellers explore our beautiful country and interact with locals who are some of the friendliest people in the world. These people need support from the travellers more than ever now. This initiative is aimed at enabling each of those travellers to support these families, by donating as little as 5$, irrespective of where they are.”
By donating to such a cause you too can make a direct impact on the lives of these families.
With a donation through camboticket.com, 100% of your donations are going to those in need. With $5 feeding a family for a week. That means by donating $20 you will be feeding a family for an entire month!
Camboticket has not only been working on a local-level to help those in need. They have also partnered with anywhr.co to raise funds through regional donation initiatives to increase the donations coming in, making sure all donations go directly to the Cambodian people.
