Seoul, Korea, July 30 (Whowired)--Cathay Pacific Airways and UNICEF Hong Kong made the announcement that they collected 12.9 million HKD for the year 2011 with its fund raising campaign “Change for Good.” Passengers would willingly dole out changes in foreign currency left during their travel overseas to help disadvantaged children across the world.

The fund has been delivered to underprivileged children in about 150 developing countries. One full month of the collected funds are regularly sent to a designated local bank in Hong Kong to supply wheelchairs to the children suffering from serious condition called radiculopathy.
Cathay Pacific CEO John Slosar said he was pleased to continue the partnership with UNICEF and extended his heartfelt gratitude to all the passengers who has been supporting the campaign for over the past two decades.
