Shangri-La’s Sanya Resort & Spa, Hainan launched its Embrace Programme –“Use Your Heart to Hear the Love of the Wold” on International Children’s Day.


The resort’s management and staff invited 28 children from the Sanya Hui Kang Hearing and Language Rehabilitation Centre along with their families and teachers to the resort for a morning of festive celebrations. Shangri-La’s Sanya Resort& Spa, Hainan is the first resort to corporate with this children’s rehabilitation Centre.

Sanya Hui Kang Children’s Rehabilitation Center was established in July 2014 and was opened by the Sanya Disabled Persons Federation and Hainan Hui Kang Hearing and Language Rehabilitation Center. The centre offers rehabilitation classes and training for children ages 2 to 12 years old who are autistic, hearing impaired, linguistically impaired, or who have down syndrome.

For the celebrations today, the resort arranged comfortable transportation for the families and had a welcome reception at the ballroom. The morning was spent at the resort’s 510 square metere Adventure Zone where staff joined the kids as the played. After playtime everyone headed upstairs for colouring and clay playtime. The beautiful drawing made by the children will be hung on display in the resort. The celebration concluded with lunch at the Children’s buffer where every child was celebrated and received a plush toy for their colouring contribution.

Mr. Dexter Cheng, the general manager of Shangri-La’s Sanya Resort & Spa, Hainan said: “Today’s activity is just the start and the basis for our long-term cooperation for our Embrace Program. We want to engage and support these children and let them know that we as a part of the community not only care about them today, but that we are here in the long run to be a part of their growth and development.”

Embrace, Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts’ Care for People Project, was launched in September 2009. The project committed each hotel to a 10 to 15-year partnership with a chosen beneficiary working on children’s health or education programmes. Whether it is a school, health center or orphanage, the entity must require resources that the hotel can very ably deliver on. These include infrastructure support, fundraising, life skills training and even hotel apprenticeships.

Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts remains committed to operating in an economically, socially and environmentally responsible manner while balancing the interests of diverse stakeholders.  In striving to be a leader in corporate citizenship and sustainable development, a corporate-level CSR Committee drives the company’s initiatives in the strategic areas of stakeholder relations, environment, health and safety, supply chain and employees.  Under the umbrella of sustainability, Shangri-La’s social responsibility programme consists of the two elements of “embrace” and “sanctuary”.  Embrace focuses on Shangri-La’s Caring People Project, which aims to promote the highest level of education and health support in underprivileged communities.  In sanctuary, the programme concentrates on Shangri-La’s Care for Nature Project, which promotes the conservation and restoration of biodiversity.  For more information, please access the CSR section on www.shangri-la.com.
