Genuine CARE with Heep Hong Society

Heep Hong Society is a local non-profit organisation committed to providing professional care, education, training and family support services to children - from babies to students in junior secondary schools - who have developmental and learning problems. Since 2000, they have made great strides in helping children with Autism, Asperger Syndrome, ADHD and other specific learning difficulties and special needs.

Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong has been a supportive partner to the organisation since 2009, with numerous charitable initiatives and periodic activities with the children. Today, 70% of them are able to enter the “mainstream” educational system after few years spent at the Heep Hong Society Centre.

 

Easter Children’s Party 

 On 4 April 2015, over 85 children from the Heep Hong Society and the families of our colleagues enjoyed an Easter children’s party in the Island Ballroom that was organised by the hotel’s colleagues. The fun party featured games, performances, a scrumptious buffet lunch and a raffle that allowed every child to take home a prize.    

 

Limited-edition "McMug the Red-Nosed Reindeer"

With the great success in 2013's collaboration on "McDull Christmas Tree", Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong once again worked with renowned local illustrator Alice Mak in 2014 to create “McMug the Red-nosed Reindeer” mini speaker. Transformed into a red-nosed reindeer, the lovable McMug spread the festive joy with Christmas melodies to children in need. Proceeds of the charity sale went directly to Heep Hong Society.
