HYATT REGENCY KATHMANDU CELEBRATES GLOBAL MONTH OF COMMUNITY SERVICE donates US$2,500 to the Children’s Protection Home for its positive community impact
KATHMANDU, NEPAL (24 August 2015) – As part of Hyatt Thrive Global Month of Community Service, a philanthropic program, Hyatt Regency Kathmandu announced today that it has donated US$ 2,500 to the Children’s Protection Home in order to help it in its efforts to improve the welfare of children. The Children’s Protection Home focuses on helping children who have been deprived of basic needs such as education, love, care, social justice, and fundamental human rights and its objective is to help orphaned and destitute children live in a society free from cruelty, injustice and exploitation.
The Hyatt Thrive Global Month of Community Service program, which is now in its fifth year, encourages hotels around the world to give something back to the communities they call home. The program builds on Hyatt’s belief that no one better understands a community’s most pressing issues – and their solutions – than those who live and work in it.
All participating non-profit organizations must have a significant local presence and must support one of Hyatt’s four focus areas – Environmental Sustainability, Education & Personal Advancement, Economic Development & Investment, and Health & Wellness.
In April, associates from the hotel volunteered to clean and paint the Children’s Protection Home. That this activity was recognized was demonstrated by the hotel being selected as runner-up to the winning project of all the projects submitted by Hyatt hotels around the world. An award of US$2,500 was given to the hotel to further support its charity work and the funds were used to buy 36 mattresses, 3 desktop computers and a printer for the Children’s Protection Home.
“We are honored to support the Children’s Protection Home and its valuable contribution to our community,” said Ms Sinead O’Reilly-Henell, General Manager, Hyatt Regency Kathmandu. “It is most important for us to be active participants in our area, and this program gives us the chance to give something back to the local community. Hyatt Regency Kathmandu is proud to be associated with the Children’s Protection Home.”
“Receiving this help is a great honor for us, and we are thankful that Hyatt Regency Kathmandu chose our organization for its Global Month of Community Service,” said Mr Suraj Khanal, Center Chief of the Children’s Protection Home. “We know that such assistance will go a long way in helping us achieve our goals of promoting the health and quality of life for helpless children; providing care and protection for illiterate, abused and abandoned children; breaking the cycle of child labor and child prostitution, as well as creating a suitable environment and providing opportunities for the physical, mental, emotional, social, and vocational development of children.”
