The Park Hotel Group has adopted World Vision International as its official supported charity.

World Vision International is a relief, development and advocacy organisation dedicated to working with children and communities worldwide by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice.

Extending its work to approximately 100 million people in nearly 100 countries, World Vision builds thriving communities to lift children and their families out of poverty, coupled with a range of interventions to address immediate needs like food, water and shelter when disaster strikes.

With Park Hotel Groups properties in Singapore, China, Japan and Hong Kong participating in this meaningful cause, the group strives to raise up to Sin$500,000 to support World Visions initiatives.

In particular, room guests are provided with a platform to showcase their generosity with a donation of Sin$2 / RMB10 / JPY100/ HK$10 for every room booking.

All the funds raised will support the forgotten and less privileged in communities under the care of World Vision International.

Specifically, over Sin$100,000 of the funds will go towards the construction of a three-storey Girls Dormitory in the precinct of Yong Sheng in Yunnan, China. An highly impoverished area, more than 50% of the population in the Yong Sheng Area Development Programme (ADP) lack adequate food and clothing for survival, accentuated by poor healthcare amongst children, a shortage of healthcare facilities and personnel as well as a badly damaged ecosystem. Although there is only one primary school, most children between the ages of six and 12 do not receive education as parents cannot afford the school fees - each day is a struggle simply to feed the family.

Extending 50 years of loving hospitality, care and embrace across boundaries to reach out to the less fortunate in countries we operate in, Park Hotel Groups first group-wide fundraising campaign gives a special meaning to our 50th Anniversary celebrations, said Mr Mohd K Rafin, Senior Vice President of Park Hotel Group. We look forward to coming together as a socially responsible group to garner donations, to make a difference in the lives of the disadvantaged and to witness a positive transformation in the well-being of communities.
