Harvey World Helps Bali Sight Seeing

Australian Wholesaler Pledges Funds for Bali's John Fawcett Foundation.

(10/27/2003) Australian travel wholesaler Harvey World Travel have declared their intention of provide AU$ 120,000 to support the John Fawcett Foundation in Bali.

The funds will be provided to the Bali-based foundation that has provided critical eye care to over 16,000 Balinese during its 10 year existence. The John Fawcett Foundation is the largest and longest-established non-government organisation working in health among the poor of Bali. Incorporated in Western Australia, the Foundation works closely with the Bali Health authorities.

The decision to support the Bali charity was made by Harvey World in recognition of the contribution that the island of Bali has made to the travel group's business over the past 20 years.

Australian Market Turn Around

According to officials of Harvey World, reports show that visitor numbers to Bali from Australia fell by 57 per cent this year but the latest figures reveal a turnaround in the market, with an estimated 118,000 people intending to travel to the island over the current three-month period. Another survey states that seven per cent of Australians planning holidays overseas in the next 12 months would opt for Bali.
