Travel agency puts up fund for distressed Pinoys

by | News

To show its appreciation for the Filipino community that covers majority of its customers, travel agency Tabeer Tourism LLC has opened up Tabeer Kabayan Trust, a charity account, exclusively for Overseas Filipinos in dire need.

With a signed agreement, the travel agency will course through the fund allocation to the Philippine Consulate General (PCG), which will identify its beneficiaries.

The signing and unveiling ceremony of Tabeer Kabayan Trust was attended by Consul General Paul Raymund Cortes as well as Vice Consuls Elizabeth Ramos and Marianne Bringas on April 24 at Tabeer Tourism office in Dubai.

“This market has supported us a lot. We have an office in the Philippines, and they are majority of our customers here. So we thought we should also do something in return because we acknowledge that this community has contributed to the company’s success in business,” said Imtiaz Hussain Nasir, General Manager, Tabeer Tourism LLC.

“We will set aside some budget out of our profits. We will not get it from other sources. We will provide all the funding. Although I cannot disclose the amount we have allotted but to give you an idea, we are targeting to help at least 10 to 20 people per month,” he added.

In his short talk at the ceremony, the consul general expressed his gratitude to the company saying its generosity exceeded his expectations.

“When we have something like Tabeer Tourism coming up with Tabeer Kabayan Trust Fund, it just shows that there should be enough faith in humanity because not all people think the same way in terms of service over profits,” said Cortes.

“And in this year of giving, this trust fund is exactly what it means to be altruistic. It exactly what it means to have a corporate social responsibility. And I hope that the rest of the business establishments follow that lead that Tabeer Tourism has shown,” he added.

Tabeer Tourism with about 20 branches operating in eight countries worldwide, including the Philippines, is also proud of its Filipino staff which comprises 60 percent of its total workforce in the UAE. The OFWs are its major clientele in the UAE, followed by Russian expats. (Henri Abenis-Macahilo)
