KUALA LUMPUR, JULY 2019- ANSA Hotel Kuala Lumpur, a 4 Star City Hotel located in Bukit Bintang, strongly believes in giving back to society and creating awareness to the public. It is one of our duties to care and give back through our company core values which are held throughout the year. As hotel business challenges continue to increase, the intrinsic value of our service and guest satisfaction will continue to expand through our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme.
In the month of July, ANSA Hotel Kuala Lumpur joined forces for the second time with Berjaya Hotels & Resorts (BHR) for their CSR programme. The volunteers, made up of 30 associates from different departments within the hotel and head office arrived at Rumah Bakti Nur Syaheera around 10am and were greeted by the founders of the home Encik Johari and Puan Suzana as well as 30 underprivileged boys and girls aged 1-17 years old.
After a welcome speech from ANSA’s Hotel Manager, Ms Siew Peng Low, the hotel associates were divided into a few groups and given tasks accordingly. One group replaced the faulty items around the home which included new fluorescent lights, installation of new wall fans and power sockets. In addition to this the second group cleaned the common areas, bedrooms and toilets of the home.
Whilst gotong-royong continued the third group of associates bonded with the children and entertained them with arts & crafts. This was extremely popular and included colourful sand art for the small children and chopstick artwork for the older ones.
Following the home’s schedule, lunch was served at noon. ANSA and BHR associates were able to serve the children a special lunch which was devoured enthusiastically by everyone. The home was delighted when ANSA and BHR associates gifted each child a present and brought them groceries including rice, cooking oil, toiletries and dry goods. As the event came to a close, all the kids thanked the hotel associates that came and spent the day with them and made them feel special.
We hope that this little contribution to Rumah Bakti Nur Syaheera will help to create more awareness among the public about underprivileged children living in Kuala Lumpur; To quote Anne Frank, “No one has ever become poor by giving’.
Rumah Bakti Nur Syaheera is a non-profit organisation for underprivileged children in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur. They survive from public donations which include money, food and gifts. Husband and wife founders, Encik Johari and Puan Suzana, set up the home because they realised there were many poor kids and orphans in the Klang Valley area. The home was established in May 2009. Their objective is to give the children a safe place to live, meals and schooling.
