In memory of Johanes 'John' Mesakh

Recently, our GTA Team in Bali lost one of our dearest and respected colleagues, Johanes "John" Mesakh, after a brief illness. 

John, aged just 25 and one of five siblings, had worked from a young age in the hospitality sector of Bali, excelling at every turn.

In an effort to raise money to support his family at this difficult time, some industry colleagues and friends are planning to complete a 30km running race at Mount Bromo, East Java, on the 4th of November.

If you would like to donate, please visit our registered Go Fund Me page with proceeds going directly to John’s family.  GTA will support by matching your donations, so please take the opportunity to join us.
