Crystal Family Home Penang is a non-profit, voluntary welfare organisation established to assist children in need of a safe home. The home provides shelter for children who come from abused, orphaned, neglected and impoverished backgrounds, as well as those who are raised by grandparents who are no longer able to care for them.
The resort provides the home with structural maintenance, refurbishment and gives educational, health and living skills support to the children through staff training and donation drives.
Living Clean and Healthy
To enhance the overall living conditions at the home, the resort has helped with its overall cleaning and refurbishment, including the painting of the home, installation of smoke detectors and dispensers for hand soap, and providing sponsored cleaning materials and supplies for floors and toilets.
Hygiene is paramount, thus Golden Sands Resort by Shangri-La has taken the initiative of conducting Typhoid Vaccination and Talks with food handlers to ensure all of the food preparation for the children is done hygienically. Partners in these workshops include the resort’s health contractors and the local Health Department.
On September 17, 2012, the home’s children were registered in a popular daily’s annual sporting event, Starwalk. The children were accompanied by the resort staff throughout the walk. Participation fees, new socks, shoes, caps and refreshments for each child were sponsored by the resort.
Joy in Giving and Sharing
Christmas is the season of giving and love. To celebrate the spirit of the season, Golden Sands Resort shared Christmas joy with the children of Crystal Home.
On 11 January 2016, 20 of our colleagues delivered presents to 18 individuals ranging from 8 to 18 years old.
Apart from that, the resort also provided some groceries for Crystal Home to help with daily operations.
The happiness on the faces of the recipients reminded all of how important it is to spread and share joy with others.
Over the year, the resort's work with Crystal Home has boosted the overall quality of life among the children who live there.
