Blandine Cressard   Blandine Cressard
Club President of Skål International Phuket.

'Skål International - Phuket and South Thailand' is a professional organisation of leaders from all branches of the travel and tourism industry. The aim of the club is to promote global tourism and friendship.

The club's meetings are usually held on the third Thursday of every month and offer members a venue for networking and discussion. Charity is also frequently one of the topics on the agenda and discussed by the table., spoke with Blandine Cressard, Club President of Skål International Phuket. Here is what she had to say:

“We Skål International Phuket are a club in Phuket who represent the travel and tourism business industries that prefer to help and give support to communities and even organisations that really need it. This is obviously subject to and based on reasonable grounds and genuine factors”.

After the Tsunami, the committee of the time wished to help the children who were effected by the Tsunami, so we selected two schools for special attention; one in Khao Lak and another in Rawai. We worked with the headmaster and director of each school to pick out some of the children who were most affected; for example those who had lost their parents, and we offered our service to help them”.

“What we are doing here at Skål is to continue their plan; we support and sponsor the children every year until their graduation which is dependent on their ages. We pay for their school requirements; uniforms, stationeries, books, and meals”.

But right now we do not just help such children we are open to more than just this. We also like to help other communities in need. They are welcome to send their details and their needs to us, then we will assess what we can do with Skål to help. If suitable, we will undertake planning; how long it might take, costs and some other details that will be needed”.
“I think maybe at the end of this year, there will be one fund raising event to raise money for these children, but we don’t have an exact date yet as at the moment we are now working on the planning of it”.

“Skål can really help you if you are in Phuket and really need assistance. Individual members can exchange ideas with other members as can companies – each of which are also encouraged to create friendship networks and communities for helping people.”
