Travel Partners and Pat Farmer Run for Peace in the Middle East

May 28, 2014 Mobile travel consulting No Comments Email Email

With a view to bring more attention and assistance to the grief-stricken areas of the Middle East, Travel Partners recently joined the Australian multiple world record holder for endurance runner, Pat Farmer, on part of his 20 day run from Lebanon to Jordan, Israel and the Palestinian Territories.

Born in the Middle East himself, Managing Partner Jeff Hakim says the Middle East is the most ancient region of human civilisation, which many Australians continue to enjoy visiting and learning about; and it is in dire need of help.Jeff Hakim running alongside Pat Farmer

“We, individually and as a company, support various causes such as this one and health researches,” says Jeff. “While we can’t afford to contribute to all of them, we do hope more people and organisations in travel will get behind such peace causes to bring as much relief as possible to the affected people in this and other regions around the world.

“For a lone Australian like Pat to get involved at a grass roots level to help bring peace to the Middle East is simply admirable and it was something Travel Partners and I knew we had to get behind 100%.

Jeff and his team at Travel Partners hosted a reception for Pat in Ashkelon, Israel and also ran alongside him from Beersheva to Tel Aviv.0U5A3996

As part of the program, Travel Partners joined Pat on his visit to a school in Haifa, Israel, where they were welcomed by Arab and Israeli children studying harmoniously side by side.

“Witnessing the convivial interaction between Pat and the school kids; and the love and support given to him by the locals everywhere we went was overwhelming,” says Jeff. “It motivated us even more in our determination to bring peace and stability to these people.”

Travel Partners welcomes agents to join their teams in various causes in Australian and around the world. For more information, agents can call 1300 559 527.
