KUALA LUMPUR, SEPTEMBER 2016 – In the spirit of volunteerism, 30 associates from Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur recently headed to Pusat Jagaan Anak Yatim dan Miskin Nurul Iman to refurbish the home and to spend some quality time with the children residing there.
Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur’s Corporate Social Responsibility program (CSR) for the month of September was championed by the hotel’s housekeeping department. The hotel associates arrived at the home at 9am, ready to assists in reparations work and to brighten up the children’s day. After a sumptuous breakfast feast prepared by the hotel for the children, the group of 30 were divided up into three main groups due to the amount of work needed to be completed for the day.
The mold stains on the wall were scrubbed clean before given a fresh coat of white pain, brightening up the exterior of the house. The second team repaired the gate outside which had been out of order for some time and replaced the burnt out light bulbs in the house so that the children would be able to study at night without straining their eyes. The third team on the hand, focused solely on repairing the cracks on the ceiling which had been damaged due to heavy rain over the years.
The repairs and renovation works ended around 3 pm and the cake- cutting ceremony took place shortly after. The delicious chocolate cake topped with powdered sugar icing specially made by the hotel’s pastry team was a delightful surprise for the children.
The hotel also donated important household necessities such as detergent and soap to the home which goes through these items very quickly due to the large number of children currently residing there.
“We have always been a big supporter of the local orphanages and have been to several different orphanages in the past for our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes. Each and every child possesses great potential to succeed and we believe in doing our part for them” said Mondi Mecja, General Manager of Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.
