Genuine CARE with Heep Hong Society
Heep Hong Society is a local non-profit organisation that is committed to providing professional care, education, training and family support services for children - from babies to students in junior secondary schools - who have developmental and learning problems. Since 2000, the organisation has made great strides in helping children with autism, Asperger's syndrome, ADHD and other specific learning difficulties and special needs.
Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong, has been a supportive partner of the organisation since 2009 and provided numerous charitable initiatives and periodic activities for the children. Today, 70% of the children are able to enter the “mainstream” educational system after spending a few years at the Heep Hong Society Centre.
Heep Hong Charity Mooncakes
Charity mooncakes presented in beautiful boxes decorated with drawings created by the Heep Hong Society were sold at the hotel’s mooncake counter during the Mid-Autumn Festival. The mooncake boxes contained four traditional mooncakes with white lotus seed paste and double egg yolks. All proceeds from the sales were donated to benefit Heep Hong Society’s diverse services and facilities.
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.
