When Cyclone Nargis hit Burma in May 2008, killing an estimated 140,000 people and devastating the Irrawaddy Delta, the Asia Transpacific Foundation, the charitable arm of tour operator Asia Transpacific Journeys, was there to help survivors with access to purified drinking water via simple clay filters. The foundation’s nimble response, which saved countless lives, was an outgrowth of its campaign to teach locals in northern Thailand and Burma how to make these filters, providing them with both clean water and a source of income. The foundation now operates four water-filter factories and has brought better hygiene and sanitation to some 450,000 people in Burma alone. t+l trip pick Sacred Mountain Kingdoms—Tibet, Nepal, and Bhutan. Meet monks in remote monasteries, observe a riverside Hindu ceremony, and explore ancient temples.
