Best Western supports World Vision work in Laos

This year, as part of Best Western’s global sponsorship with World Vision, Best Western Australasia is looking to raise $28,000 to reach its goal to sponsor a group of 50 children in the community of Laos.

To help raise the $28,000, Best Western has this week opened a special booking rate for its hotel guests: the Best Western World Vision Rate. All bookings made under the Best Western World Vision Rate in any Best Western hotel, apartment or resort in Australia, New Zealand or Fiji will see 10 per cent of the total reservation donated to the official World Vision Group Child Sponsorship in Laos fund.

Steve Richards, General Manager of Sales and Marketing said “Best Western is proud to support the work of World Vision and help fund these community projects in Laos. Best Western has an ongoing relationship with World Vision, and we are big supporters of the invaluable work that World Vision does in facilitating many sustainable environmental and humanitarian projects to help children, families and communities overcome poverty and injustice.”

Shona Langridge, Partnerships Manager at World Vision Australia, said “The situation in Laos is dire, with high-level chronic household food insecurity and child malnutrition. Best Western’s support will help to provide local communities with the funds needed to build new homes, buy resources for schools and sponsor 50 children who desperately need support. We are proud that Best Western is assisting the people of Laos to achieve a better future.”

Laos remains one of the poorest countries in southeast Asia. There are no basic road systems and limited electricity available, especially in rural areas where health services are alarmingly limited. Many rural families live in one-roomed homes, made of bamboo or wood with a thatched or tin roof, built on stilts to keep cool and avoid flooding.

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
