Tui Care Foundation is to continue supporting families in destinations which have been badly affected by the loss of tourism during the pandemic.
The tour operator’s foundation has been supplying aid packages to disadvantaged families in destinations such as Mexico, Jamaica, Egypt, Morocco, Spain and the Cape Verde islands through its Corona Relief Fund, which was launched in 2020 to help these communities.
