Ever since its opening, Jing An Shangri-La, West Shanghai, has cared for the children diagnosed with leukaemia staying at the Children’s Hospital of Fudan University through human and financial resources. To date, the hotel has contributed RMB 415,180 in funding, 1,195 employee work hours and 219 management work hours to the hospital.
Before the holiday season, Jing An Shangri-La, West Shanghai, invited the children to come to the hotel and celebrate Christmas and the coming of 2017 in a festive atmosphere. After arriving at the hotel in a bus provided by the hotel, the little angels enjoyed a healthy festive meal prepared exclusively for them in the Jing An Grand Ballroom, which was enveloped in the spirit of Christmas. The hotel also organised a series of activities for the kids. The kitchen staff taught them how to make gingerbread men, with volunteers from Human Resources and other departments actively assisting from the side.
In addition, in accordance with Christmas traditions, the children enjoyed Christmas carols performed by students from the Singapore International School. Afterward, Residence Manager Jason Stinson presented a wishing star to express his desire to help the sick children and share his heartfelt wishes. Together with more than 200 guests, the children witnessed the lighting of the Christmas tree in the piazza of Jing An Kerry Centre and spent a fun and joyful night full of warmth and caring.
During this festive season, hotel guests are encouraged to purchase Christmas wishing stars, which are priced at RMB 100 each. Proceeds from the sales of the stars will help support the medical treatment of under privileged children.
