Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions

Volunteer Tourism, Part 1

Season 17, Episode 5 of 8

One of the fastest growing areas in travel is international volunteer tourism. It started over one hundred years ago when the Red Cross set-up the Voluntary Aid Detachment (VAD) to help soldiers and civilians in combat zones regardless of their alliance. In this program, Burt travels to Geneva, Switzerland, London, and Washington, DC to talk with experts at the International Red Cross, and the World Health Organization, to find out what is happening and how we can use our vacation time to help.
