The Root Network is providing support to people affected by the closure of tourist destinations in Pakistan, including training and giving them expert advice on how to get back on their feet, including a krona prevention kit.

The network is made up of women professional travelers who have a lot of experience visiting tourist destinations. Aniqa Ali, head of the network in Pakistan, told The Independent Urdu that their aim is to hone the skills of those involved in the tourism sector so that they can figure out how to take precautions in tourist destinations in the event of an epidemic.
