The Golden Touch

Golden Sands Resort, Penang

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.
