TORONTO — Merit Travel Group has expanded its partnership with WaterAid Canada as part of a nation-wide fundraising initiative.
Merit Travel has launched Auction 4 Action — an online-fundraiser auction offering an array of exclusive travel prizes, with proceeds going towards WaterAid’s Tanzania: Deliver Life Program. The support will serve to improve child health through the provision of water and sanitation services at 12 obstetric and neonatal care clinics across rural Tanzania, Africa.
Through an ongoing commitment, Merit Travel Group has raised more than $200,000 during the course of its partnership with WaterAid Canada — raising $86,000 in 2018 alone. The company has supported WaterAid Canada through financial donations as well as corporate and travel sponsorship since 2016.
In Canada, Merit Travel professionals provide advice and services to Canadian travellers through its brands Merit Travel, Travelcuts, MeritBiz, Merit Loyalty and Exclusive Tours.
