GFOB’s fundraising support provides the equivalent of 163,934 sachets of therapeutic food to children in need, enabling them to fight malnutrition in emergency situations.

The partnership shows the company’s commitment to its Lighthouse Project initiative and its three give-back categories – People, Planet and Places, aimed to help travellers come together to give generously for the globe’s greater good.

GFOB Managing Director Asia Pacific Gai Tyrrell said: “We are thrilled to have been able to provide support in a meaningful way to our valued partners at UNICEF Australia and cannot thank our customers enough for their involvement in helping us reach this milestone.”

“This milestone is a shared achievement between our team and every single guest who has travelled with us.
