Kerala Travel Mart (KTM) and other tourism organisations have donated ₹50 lakh to the Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund to aid the government’s fight against Covid-19, pooling in money from the stakeholders of the State’s biggest tourism body.

At a function in the State capital, Tourism Minister Kadakampally Surendran was handed over a cheque for the amount by KTM President Baby Mathew along with fellow functionaries of the two-decade-old organisation.

“It is our responsibility to contribute to society when we are facing a challenge,” said Mathew. “The support we got from across KTM members were really inspiring.”

The ₹50-lakh donation came from KTM and other tourism organisations including Homestays and Tourism Society (HATS), Thekady Destination Promotion Council (TDPC), South Kerala Hotel Federation (SKHF), South Indian Hotels and Restaurants Association (SIHRA) besides other members.

KTM conducts the biennial Kerala Travel Mart, that hosts the country’s largest buyer-seller meet in the tourism segment.
